The one web design book you need
This comprehensive guide covers all the basics, from building a customer profile that drives all design decisions to evaluating the usability of a site on real customers. Others have mentioned the real-world examples -- they're worth the price of the book alone. But what sets this guide apart from every other UI design book out there is the discussion of the design (and launch) process, the different roles that are essential to maintaining a site, and the technologies that a web designer needs to know about (technologies that impact design).
A valuable guide for newbie designers and experienced pros alike. An excellent reference book that I'll turn to again and again.

A Great Introduction To E-Commerce Design
A super read for anyone getting started in creating e-commerce sites. Especially valuable are the real world examples. They dive into nitty gritty details and go beyond the basic offerings of the case studies in other books (e.g. the extensive info on shopping carts/checkout and the visual examples that accompany).

Important and key design principles made EASY!
Bowman and Willis put together what should be considered required for all graphic designers and web designers. Too many in the field have forgotten the importance of designing for the user in mind. The authors cover just how imperitive it is.
It is simple, straight-forward and has plenty of full-color illustrations and design examples...for reading impaired designers like myself.
You want to design a website that works? Want to design one that tells you a lot of things you never learned in your graphic design classes? Want to learn what is important and what is not? Pick up a copy. Like I said, this should be required reading.
Two thumbs WAY up.
