An excellent book for anyone who wants to understand why so much software is so poorly designed — and an even better book for anyone who wants to DO something about the problem. Must reading (and doing!) for programmers of any level.
Nice Book about User Interface Design. You get a good Overview, understand why the windows-gui is that complex and get ideas how to make it better.
