Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"Frank Thissen has given us a wonderful survey of the many factors affecting screen design for multimedia products. . The pages are well illustrated . . The color pages caught my eye . and will be yet another useful reference. . The Appendix contains a thorough list of references, broken down into many categories. This list will be a great resource . . If you could read only one book on the factors affecting screen design, let it be this one." (Rebecca C. Hall, Technical Communication, Vol. 52 (2), May, 2005)
