DOET by Don Norman πŸ“”

My notes on The Design of Everyday Things (DOET) by Don Norman.

DOET is a well-written book that provides a comprehensive look into the world of product design. The author argues that poor design is prevalent in our world and leads to frustration. He provides key principles of design, such as visibility and mapping, which are essential for creating products that are user-friendly and intuitive.
