Mobile Usability

Mobile Usability by Jakob Nielsen and Raluca Budiu is a disappointing book with few real insights and some usability problems of its own.

Designing with the Mind in Mind

This is a solid primer on design guidelines and their basis in human perception and cognition, but for experienced designers it covers mostly familiar territory.

Eyetracking Web Usability

This book shows that, for the most part, it’s difficult to abstract away from specific users tackling specific tasks on specific websites to draw useful, general conclusions from eyetracking data.

A Project Guide to UX Design

This book is an excellent introduction to the field of user experience design, and provides a wealth of references for further reading.
