Books by Alan Cooper, inc. "ABOUT FACE The Essentials of user interface design".

Probably a little dated but still a very worthwhile read.

Alan Cooper also has another decent read called The Inmates are Running the Asylum.

Steve Krug - Don't Make Me Think.

While the book is geared for website design, most of it applies to GUI's also.
