The design fundamentals presented in this book are pretty basic and common sense. Just having use the Microsoft Office suite on Windows will have taught you many of these things. But what you will find is that the book not only gives you the 'how' of interface design, but also the 'why'.
You'll learn all about:
* Arranging text and controls in a sensible order
* Understanding and making the most of the behavior of windows
* Improving the effectiveness of dialog boxes
* Using advanced controls such as TreeViews, ListViews, and tabs
* Designing menus and toolbars
* Providing users with sensible customization options
* Understanding how the rules change when designing for the Web
* Handling page layout and navigation on the Web
* Anticipating changes in the next version of Windows

Throughout, author Mike Gunderloy is doggedly realistic. Like in his previous book, Coder to Developer: Tools and Strategies for Delivering Your Software, Mike describes how things actually work and prescribes ways for you to achieve meaningful results without staging a revolution. This is hard-won, practical knowledge from a veteran developer whose advice, examples, and overall vision will change the way you think and work.
