October’s book selection is back to a technical title, and was the 2nd-place winner from the last poll:
Don't Make Me Think, Revisited (3rd ed.), by Steve Krug:
"Since Don’t Make Me Think was first published in 2000, hundreds of thousands of Web designers and developers have relied on usability guru Steve Krug’s guide to help them understand the principles of intuitive navigation and information design. Witty, commonsensical, and eminently practical, it’s one of the best-loved and most recommended books on the subject. Now Steve returns with fresh perspective to reexamine the principles that made Don’t Make Me Think a classic–with updated examples and a new chapter on mobile usability. And it’s still short, profusely illustrated…and best of all–fun to read."

If you've already read this month's selection - that's great! If you’ve only skimmed it, or didn’t quite make it to the end, that's okay, too. Be sure to RSVP so we'll have plenty of pizza, soft drinks, and beer for everyone.
See you there!
