Another Cooper book. This one is older, but it is still an excellent read for both software developers and managers to understand why interface design is so crucial, and why programmers aren't good at it but still try. Because it talks about fundamental differences in the psychology of programmers versus interaction designers, it doesn't go out of date as quickly as more technical titles.

I love his definition of "homo logicus". This stuff isn't covered in his newer book, so both make an excellent combo, starting with this one to understand the problem before moving on to About Face to read about the solution.

A truly beautiful "coffee-table style" book on interaction design, also covering product and industrial design of digital technology Moggridge is a founder of IDEO. It has wonderful short essays about seminal digial product designs, from Engelbart's mouse, to the Mac and Palm, to Google and other internet services, as well as articles on digital product design theory.

My own Sweet Spots and Baroque Technology article was based on one of the theory articles.

Special treat: video interviews and chapters are available for free, on a weekly rotation, at designinginteractions. This title focuses more on the process of designing good user interfaces, and is less technical, but excellent and up-to-date in the area it addresses. The has slides, case studies, and other materials. Similar to Moggridge's book in style, this book focuses on the early stages of product design. It also includes very interesting stories of key interactive products, such as Apple's iPod.

And of course it's written by one of the long-time key players in HCI.

Terry Winograd ed. Its particular value also comes from the profiles that link chapters and give an insider's view of how some of the most seminal UI designs came to be, from the Xerox Star to VisiCalc and HyperCard.

Terry has some information about his book online , and I used it with great success when I had the fortunate opportunity to teach an introductory HCI class in his program at Stanford in OK, I'm a Mac head, but then many HCI people are just because Apple has such a good sense of doing the right thing when it comes to user interface design. These guidelines have been around since the 90's, with several new editions since then, and especially Part I "Application Design Fundamentals" contains excellent, system-independent, hands-on advice for anybody developing interactive software not just on the Mac , especially desktop applications.

And it's free!

Apple's developer website has the latest version both online and as downloadable PDF. I often recommend this as a quick read for engineers that just want the bare essentials to help avoid major UI design catastrophes. So that's my current top 10 list.

New chapter on Universal Design, substantially extending the coverage of this material in the book.
