    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.

    "The narration will irritate you"
    Overall

    I was not overly impressed with the depth of information, however, it doesn't matter because the narration is painfully awful. It is like one long, cheezy advertisement. It is difficult to get beyond the narration, but if you do, you will find the content is shallow. He uses ridiculous fictional stories to assert his point. Be prepared for words like 'oops'.
