I need an easy to read web usability book for my web programming students. Which one do you consider is the best? I have heard good things about "Don't make me think" from Steve Krug, but I need some others to propose to them.

Thanks a lot in advance.

In addition to "Don't Make Me Think", there are a few other titles specific to web application design that come to mind, such as:

But there are many others on usability and UI design in general that apply equally to web apps.

Speaking of web usability, is there an easier way to link to Amazon book titles? I know that StackExchange makes a lot of its money through its Amazon referral links, which is why I took the time to link to them, but there ought to be an easier way to do this.

+1 on Designing Web Interfaces. Don't Make Me Think is a good place to start though. – digit1001 Dec 28 '10 at 16:17
