    As a lot of design books go, it starts out a bit slow. Once or twice even repeating an entire paragraph to strengthen a point. For the newbie designer, it would appear a little boggling. But fret not. The book is simple in the approach.
    So called usability gurus such as Nielson, write books on what you should or should not do regarding navigation, user interfaces, etc. Zeldman does something different. He takes it from the position of both designer and user advocate. Something we should all strive to be. If you don't believe me, he'll tell you the same thing. He sandwiches in the information.
    We'll look at the approach to navigation. He understands the need for us to be creative in what we do and has no desire to cramp our style. Pointing out not only the negative, but also the positive. The reasons for and against certain actions. Always enforcing the idea that anyone who says a user friendly site cannot be creative in its use has an emotional problem.
    Are you a freelance designer about to get hired on as part of permanent design staff? Don't worry. Zeldman covers that too. Going into detail on the type of people you'll be working with and what is expected of you in what he calls: The Project Life Cycle. For those of you not too familiar with techy language, he's included The Obligatory Glossary.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
