What people have said about WAMFP "I find it absolutely amazing. It has given me great insight into the questions being asked, and how to achieve a maximum response from the volunteers by wording them differently. The whole book is clear, concise and easy to understand and it has helped me enormously in my new position as a Study Co-ordinator for PIL [Patient Information Leaflet] testing. Your book has become my Bible!" -- Lynda NorthGraves, PIL Coordinator
"… Some aspects of this book have wide application in the design school curriculum. Chapter 2 gives twenty useful rules for understandable writing. These apply to instructions and explanations for any process or product from do-it-yourself furniture and computer software manuals to cookbooks and CMIs. …the chapter on diagnostic testing can be useful in testing other kinds of user-centered information tools. …This book will serve many purposes. Learning to write—and design—a good CMI belongs in any information design curriculum.
Whether or not a design school teaches information design, the library needs this book." -- Ken Friedman DESIGN RESEARCH NEWS Volume 10 Number 8, Aug 2005
