The Design of Everyday Things by Donald Norman is highly recommended to anybody who designs things to be used by people.

From physical objects to programs to tools, the book holds the power to change your perception of your surroundings so you can point out and analyse bad design and raise your bar on what constitutes a good design.

It is the story of doors, faucets, rangetops and refrigerators presented in a humorous way.

Norman’s observations and recommendations around usable design were ahead of their time and hold extremely well even after 25+ years.
