This review is from: Designing with the Mind in Mind: Simple Guide to Understanding User Interface Design Rules (Paperback)I used this book for one of my development goals at work this year with the intent of finding flaws in our current implementation of user interfaces. In that aspect I think its a very good book. It's divided into sections on different theories and problems and allows the reader to apply the design theories to their own work.
I also liked the fact that it wasn't an entire book filled with "this type of GUI element is used for this, this type is used for that". GUI's are changing so constantly these days that it's better to learn why you do certain things rather than specifics.
