Addison-Wesley Publishing Company (Reading, Mass/ Menlo Park, Cal./New York) 1992, English text 550 pp.

Changes in computer systems have made vast information and communication resources available to a growing number of users. The user interface - the part of every system that determines how people control and operate their computers - is the primary gateway to these remarkable creative tools. Insofar as the user interface will affect the performance of a system, the productivity of users, and the satisfaction and clarity that users experience, its design has become critical consideration in software and hardware development. Designing the User Interface, Second Edition is written for anyone who needs to understand the complex interaction between people and machines. It will benefit people who build interactive systems and people who market them, people interested in systems design and people interested in human performance.
