How much user empathy do you need -- and how much is too much? When should you listen to your customers about specific interface/feature requests, and when should you serve as a judicious editor of their demands? Should you follow the interface lead of your competitor? What is, after all, the ultimate goal of your interface? And what on earth is the best way to lay out forms (everyone's most-hated design task)?
These questions are less tricky than they may first appear, and they are chief among the topics covered in When Interface Design Attacks!. Anyone is capable of improving his or her interface design skills.
