  1. Michael, I’m with you on the subset of these that I’ve gotten round to. I generally keep Luke W’s and Jenifer Tidwell’s books close to hand. And I cannot recommend Krug’s book enough.

    Different topic, do you know of any useful books that deal with hardware device design? I’m especially interested in portable consumer devices.
