From one of the foremost authorities on the design of user
interfaces, this unique collection of ideas and opinions, while
focusing on the Macintosh, neatly captures the underlying
principles of all graphical user interfaces. Using ideas from such
diverse sources as Information Theory, Carl Jung, and even
professional beekeeping, the book provides a framework for
achieving a deep understanding of user interface design.
With humor and thought-provoking insights, Bruce Tognazzini
explores the central issues of human-computer interaction,
including the challenges presented by multimedia applications,
agents, virtual reality, and future technologies. Drawn from his
long experience of working with developers, the book provides
practical guidelines for developing successful applications that
users will find simple, clear, and consistent.
"Tog on Interface" is fascinating reading for all those
concerned with the relationship between people and computers.
