Maybe you're an engineer, or maybe you work with a designer. Maybe you think that design is what you do in Photoshop. Or maybe you just care about design.

If any of these are true, then there's a lot you can learn by reading and understanding these books. They'll help you understand how to solve problems for people out there in the real world.

These books cover the basics — the foundations of designing for people. There's no fancy Photoshop stuff. There's not much strictly on visual design. Instead these books are about understanding what people need when they interact with the things you make.

Of course, there are many other great books on design. Some that go much deeper. Some that give great high level summaries. I choose these 5 books because they are the ones that I've learnt the most from personally. Either way, there is a lifetime of learning here, so get to it. If you're making an app, creating a new website, or designing a chair, these books might help you to design and make better things.
