    Great list! I didn’t know that Steve Krug has written new book!

  • Reader

    Most of these books are bad, they are rewritten from older material, just read their Table of Contents and samples and see for yourself.

    These books are done to get publicity for the “author” not for the benefit of the reader.

    So sad.
