Why we don't really want simplicity, and how we can learn to live with complexity.

If only today's technology were simpler! It's the universal lament, but it's wrong. In this provocative and informative book, Don Norman writes that the complexity of our technology must mirror the complexity and richness of our lives. It's not complexity that's the problem, it's bad design. Bad design complicates things unnecessarily and confuses us. Good design can tame complexity.

Norman gives us a crash course in the virtues of complexity. Designers have to produce things that tame complexity. But we too have to do our part: we have to take the time to learn the structure and practice the skills. This is how we mastered reading and writing, driving a car, and playing sports, and this is how we can master our complex tools.

Complexity is good. Simplicity is misleading. The good life is complex, rich, and rewarding -- but only if it is understandable, sensible, and meaningful.

The book is all about managing complexity in our lives!
Firstly he has explained the differences between “complexity” and “confusing, complicated”
He uses “confusing and complicated” for the mental situation of person. In this point, we clearly understand that it is the confusing things we have to complain about not the complexity! Because the human beings are complex, our minds are complex, behaviors are also complex...

He has used lots of instances, figures and explanations about them! Its easy to read not “confusing” at all even it has so many topic inside!
Last thing, hes talking about “Simplicity is in our minds!”
Highly recommended!
