La psicología de los objetos cotidianos book cover
La psicología de los objetos cotidianos
Revised and Expanded Edition
Don Norman - 2002-09-19 (publicado por primera vez en 1988)
Calificación de Goodreads
¿Por qué los teléfonos modernos tienen teclas que no sirven para nada? ¿Por qué no se sabe, con frecuencia, si para abrir una puerta hay que empujar, o tirar, o si se trata de una puerta deslizante? ¿Por qué es tan difícil entender un manual de instrucciones? Con muchos ejemplos similares y en clave de humor, Donald A. Norman, uno de los psicólogos más imaginativos de las últimas décadas, analiza los problemas del diseño de los objetos que nos rodean en la vida cotidiana y el tipo de conocimiento que cada uno requiere. La obra es también una amena y lúcida lección de psicología que utiliza el diseño como excusa.

I normally don't share what I read on Shabbat, preferring to share my favorite books at the end of the year. However, I will say that the chapter in The Design of Everyday Things on human error is perfect reading for Shabbat Shuva and repentance.      fuente
