    Steve Krug

    Steve Krug (pronounced “kroog”) is best known as the author of Don’t Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability, now in its second edition with more than 300,000 copies in print.

    Ten years later, he finally gathered enough energy to write another one: the usability testing handbook Rocket Surgery Made Easy: The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Finding and Fixing Usability Problems.

    The books were based on the 20-plus years he’s spent as a usability consultant for a wide variety of clients, such as Apple, Bloomberg.com, Lexus.com, NPR, the International Monetary Fund, and many others.

    His consulting firm, Advanced Common Sense (“just me and a few well-placed mirrors”), is based in Chestnut Hill, MA.

    Steve currently spends most of his time teaching usability workshops, consulting, and watching old episodes of “Law and Order”.
