Comments about the author: Jeffrey Veen is an internationally sought-after speaker, author and consultant. He is a founding partner of Adaptive Path, a user experience consultancy focusing on the impact of design on business.

Review: There are hundreds, if not thousands of books on web design and development out there for us to reference. While there are so many authors writing, there are far fewer worth spending your money on: Jeffrey Veen though is one worth the money.

Veen's book The Art and Science of Web Design is a lesson to all of us in web development that the age of specialization is drawing to an end. To succeed in this maturing field, we need to begin integrating our design, programming and usability skills into one cohesive package that provides value to our employers and value to our users.

The Art and Science of Web Design touches on many areas from interface consistency, to rule-based design to browsers. I've read scores of books on web development and without doubt, Veen's book was one of the most enjoyable reads and one of the more informative texts I've purchased.

This is one book worth adding to your personal library.
