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.

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