I'm excited to learn that Designing Search by Greg Nudelman is now publicly available. It's a brilliant book that overflows with illustrations and insights.
In celebration, I'm posting the foreword. If you have any interest in search, I highly recommend you read Greg's book. Of course, you should also read:
- Search User Interfaces by Marti Hearst
- Search Patterns by Peter Morville and Jeffery Callender
- Search Analytics by Louis Rosenfeld
After reading all four books, you'll have a real appreciation for just how much you still don't know about search. Welcome to the club!
