Reviewing website design/navigation While it is preferable to make recommendations based on solid data, it can be clear when websites should follow best practice design principles. To a large degree, I base these on common sense. For support, I recommend the book by Steven Krug ‘Don’t make me think: A common sense approach to Web Usability’
