Don't Make Me Think
by Steve Krug
(*)(*)(*)(*)(*)(690)
Five years and more than 100,000 copies after it was first published, it's hard to imagine anyone working in Web design who hasn't read Steve Krug's "instant classic" on Web usability, but people are still discovering it every day. In this second edition, Steve adds three new chapters in the same style as the original: wry and entertaining, yet loaded with insights and practical advice for novice and veteran alike. Don't be surprised if it completely changes the way you think about Web design.

Still applies
This is a great book, telling you things that you know in a way that makes you think that you didn't actually know it. And this time you don't ignore it.

Very short, easy to read and usefull
but it looks to some extend outdated (I read the II edition - 2006) In any case Nielsen remains the best one on this topic.

Read "Design of everyday things" by Donald Norman first. Then, read this book
It's all about design. Knuth focuses on web design, but the bottom line is in Norman's book: every thing shall be designed in such a way that the USER don't need to THINK about what's going to happen when the THING is going to be used. A good manual for software developers who do aren't keen on usability issues.
