The Design of Everyday Things

Author: Norman Don
Publisher: Vahlen
ISBN: 9783800648108
Release Date: 2016-01-11
Genre: Business & Economics

Apple, Audi, Braun oder Samsung machen es vor: Gutes Design ist heute eine kritische Voraussetzung für erfolgreiche Produkte. Dieser Klassiker beschreibt die fundamentalen Prinzipien, um Dinge des täglichen Gebrauchs umzuwandeln in unterhaltsame und zufriedenstellende Produkte. Don Norman fordert ein Zusammenspiel von Mensch und Technologie mit dem Ziel, dass Designer und Produktentwickler die Bedürfnisse, Fähigkeiten und Handlungsweisen der Nutzer in den Vordergrund stellen und Designs an diesen angepasst werden. The Design of Everyday Things ist eine informative und spannende Einführung für Designer, Marketer, Produktentwickler und für alle an gutem Design interessierten Menschen. Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois. Mitte der Neunzigerjahre leitete Don Norman die Advanced Technology Group bei Apple. Dort prägte er den Begriff der User Experience, um über die reine Benutzbarkeit hinaus eine ganzheitliche Erfahrung der Anwender im Umgang mit Technik in den Vordergrund zu stellen. Norman ist Mitbegründer der Beratungsfirma Nielsen Norman Group und hat unter anderem Autohersteller von BMW bis Toyota beraten. „Keiner kommt an Don Norman vorbei, wenn es um Fragen zu einem Design geht, das sich am Menschen orientiert.“ Brand Eins 7/2013 „Design ist einer der wichtigsten Wettbewerbsvorteile. Dieses Buch macht Spaß zu lesen und ist von größter Bedeutung.” Tom Peters, Co-Autor von „Auf der Suche nach Spitzenleistungen“

Aus den Besprechungen: "Mit der gelungenen Übersetzung wird dem deutschen Studenten, Dozenten und Ingenieur ein schon seit 1982 in den USA verbreitetes und bewährtes Standardwerk zugängig gemacht. Dieses Buch besticht zunächst dadurch, daß die Finite-Element-Methode in großer Breite abgehandelt wird. ... Dabei fehlt es nicht an Tiefe der Durchdringung und mathematischer Strenge. Didaktisch wird geschickt von jeweils einführenden Abschnitten und vielen Berechnungsbeispielen ausgegangen. ... Dieses hervorragende Lehrbuch und Nachschlagewerk dürfte auch den deutschen Fachleuten ein unentbehrlicher Begleiter werden." Schweissen & Schneiden#1 "... Im Anhang werden anhand des abgedruckten Programs STAP alle wesentlichen Aspekte, die die Implementierung der Verfahren betreffen, erörtert. Zahlreiche Zahlenbeispiele sorgen dafür, daß auch Leser mit nur geringen Vorkenntnissen den "roten Faden" nicht verlieren. Das Buch dokumentiert auf eindrucksvolle Weise den hohen Entwicklungsstandard der Methode der Finiten Elemente. Es ist ein sehr gutes Hilfsmittel für die Ausbildung von Studenten der Ingenieurwissenschaften in höheren Semestern. Darüber hinaus kann es aber auch allen interessierten Ingenieuren als Grundlagenwerk sehr empfohlen werden." Bautechnik#2

Endlich erfindet wieder jemand das Pop-Science-Erklärbuch neu! Wenn xkcd.com einen neuen Science Cartoon postet, vibriert das Internet. Sein Blog What if, auf dem der Physiker Randall Munroe jede Woche scheinbar unsinnige Fragen mit exakter Wissenschaft und genialen Strichmännchen beantwortet, ist Kult. Wie lange würde es dauern, bis wir merken würden, dass sich der Erdumfang verändert? Was wäre, wenn der gesamte Niederschlag in einem – quasi omnidirektionalen - Überschall-Regentropfen fiele? Endlich auch als Buch und endlich auf Deutsch!

When Technology Fails

Author: Matthew Stein
Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing
ISBN: 9781603580953
Release Date: 2008-08-18
Genre: House & Home

There’s never been a better time to “be prepared.” Matthew Stein’s comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe. When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You’ll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you’ve been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You’ll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. You’ll learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad. Fully revised and expanded—the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina, when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously—When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.
