Book Review 

Ben Shneiderman has written a wonderful book about computers and what human beings should expect to be able to use them for.  He talks about "user centered" computer and how everyone should be able to use computers to do a better job.  By everyone he means everyone, no matter who you are, disabled or not. 

He goes into great detail about how the computer should be used and how it should be built to suit the user, not the user changing to suit the way the computer is built.

This is the way it should and must be.  People should not serve computers, computers should serve the needs of the human population no matter who 0r where they are.  He includes a great list of references and his examples of how the new computing should work are outstanding.

He makes his case well with detailed examples and commentaries on the subject.  This books is a must buy for all of us!
