You must have the hardcopy of, "The Design of Everyday Things," by Donald A. Norman. I, too, am a fan or Norman and Nielsen. This is a book I have on my bookshelf, too. I have the paperback edition and prior to the Preface is a section called, "Preface To the Paperback Edition". Within "Preface To the Paperback Edition"is this heading, "The Book Title: A Lesson In Design". In this section he tells who the audience is and what the book covers.

I wonder why he felt it necessary to add such a section to the paperback edition, being he's associated with the Father of Usability, Nielsen.
