Shockingly Selective Bibliography – User Interface Design for Programmers

Shockingly
Selective
Bibliography

One of the things that continuously surprises me is just how few resources about user interface design are out there. Rather than include a huge bibliography that you may ignore, I've decided to include just six books, because I actually think you should go out and buy all of them. They are all that good.
