Don't Make Me Think
Despite not being a very thick book, Don't Make Me Think contains a great deal of excellent advice on web usability. It's also very entertaining to read, and you'll find yourself recognising a lot of the situations described. I really love the comic strips that illustrate the endless discussions that occur in almost every project or team. The book starts by going through basic usability guidelines, all the time explaining why one way of designing something is better than the other. The last few chapters explain how you can do your own usability testing without breaking your budget. This is a very helpful book that will only take you a few hours to read, and make you look at websites in a new way.
