Summary:
Simplicity turns out to be more complex than we thought. In this book, Don Norman writes that the complexity of our technology must mirror the complexity and richness of our lives. It's not complexity that's the problem, it's bad design. Bad design complicates things unnecessarily and confuses us. Good design can tame complexity. Norman gives a crash course in the virtues of complexity.--[book jacket].
