    In The Design of Future Things, best-selling author Donald A. Norman presents a revealing examination of smart technology, from smooth-talking GPS units to cantankerous refrigerators. Exploring the links between design and human psychology, he offers a consumer-oriented theory of natural human-machine interaction that can be put into practice by the engineers and industrial designers of tomorrows thinking machines.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Design of Future Things in three words, what would they be?

    Don Norman is one of the foremost minds in the psychology of things, and how we interact with them. Always a pleasure to hear his thoughts, although already a bit dated.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book is on one hand a good view of design psychology in a time where machines are becoming more and more smart and automated, and interaction more a question of them communicating with us in the right way (and second guessing us gently rather than forcefully) than us understanding their workings fully.


    Any additional comments?

    Sadly, a lot of the book is about cars and "smart homes", and it was written before the true advent of cloud computing and the smart phone. It's absolutely worth a listen, even if it's a view from the recent past, which is fascinating in itself.

    What would have made The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary better?

    Several of the "chapters" in this summary are just marketing for other products. More real content would be needed to take this anywhere beyond 1 or 2 stars. Apart from that, it simply confirms my worst impressions of the self-help genre.


    What could Save Time Summaries have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This review is exceptionally shallow. It does not present any arguments from the book (which I assume are there) - almost only reads the chapter headlines and sales pitches aloud.


    Did John Steele do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    There are no characters. The question does not apply.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: By Stephen Covey -- Summary?

    Again, no scenes. The review is so short, that I would have cut nothing. Additional material was needed for me to get much out of this.
