Appledesign - approx. $300 new or used on Amazon (go for broke!)
- documenting a lot of historic design languages utilized by Apple's design team and also provides readers with a lot of historical insight into the early industrial design struggles internally.

Apple Design (note the difference) - aprox. $40 on Amazon
- have not read this one

Defying Gravity: The Making of Newton - approx. $40 on Amazon
- documents the design and development of the Newton Message Pad handheld PDA/Computer. This, in my opinion, should be mandatory reading for ANYONE who will be involved in product development in any discipline. The frantic pace, insane deadlines, unending work days, pressure-pressure-pressure, successes, failures, etc. - it's all in here supported by great photo journalism.

Design is a Job - Mike Monteiro

Should be required reading for all designers of all types (ID, GD, Web Design, etc.) Well worth money.

Those who define design as knowing how to use Illustrator will be condemned to using Illustrator their entire career. - @monteiro
