This is a suggested reading list for winter break or summer vacation. None of these are required for class but I will cite them from time to time or suggest they are ways to drill down in to a specific topic.
Post comments if you think of books that should be on this list. I’m ok with podcasts/videos if they have permanent URLs
Make it So, Nathan Shedroff: User interface design from science fiction movies and television.
Design for the Real World, Victor Papanek: a manifesto on the value of design over profit written by a guy who co-founded IDSA then got kicked out because of this book.
The Design of Design, Frederick Brooks: thinking about design as a long-time designer of, well, everything.
The Chair, Galen Cranz: Why do we spend so much time sitting and why is that bad for us?
The Invisible Computer, Donald Norman: Title says it all.
