About face 3: the essentials of interaction design
When the first edition of About Face was published in 1995, the idea of designing products based on human goals was a revolutionary concept. Thanks to the work of Alan Cooper and other pioneers, interaction design is now widely recognized as a unique and vital discipline, but our work is far from finished.
This completely updated volume presents the effective and practical tools you need to design great desktop applications, Web 2.0 sites, and mobile devices. This book will teach you the principles of good product behavior and introduce you to Cooper's Goal-Directed Design method, from conducting user research to defining your product using personas and scenarios. In short, About Face 3 will show you how to design the best possible digital products and services.

There's a lot of insight in this book. If there weren't so many other books on my reading list, I think I'd just start at the beginning and re-read it again. A must-read for anyone who designs user interfaces.
Review: About Face 3: The Essentials of Interaction DesignUser Review - Chris Lovin - Goodreads
The first half was really interesting and relevant, the last half lost me as a mobile designer. I think it's nearly impossible to keep a book current when it comes to the actual implementation of design. Read full review
