"Here [Lior] explains how to design and create the content that customers rely on to interact with a software application successfully — such as the labels on virtual buttons to click, or step-by-step instructions displayed on pages. The information would be useful for technical writers and instructional designers, or whoever on the development team is responsible for writing, editing, or reviewing the user interface text."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013
