Designing Interactions by Bill Moggridge (2006) is an evergreen! It gives a wide look upon interaction design history and aims.
Those 3 are probably the best specifically on IxD. Here are a few others:
Thanks Jarod, thanks nplaisant and thanks Dave!! :)
I'd like to second Dave's suggestion for "Thoughts on Interaction Design" by Jon Kolko. Great book!
Here's another good one
User and Task Analysis for Interface Design (Hackos / Redish)
I would just sign Designing for the Digital Age (Goodwin) as essential, because it is like an "About Face 3 in Practice". So it blends theory with huge amounts of detailed practices, examples and thoughtful insights. This way, it´s been invaluable reference since my read.
I think that "Designing for small screens" (by Studio 7.5) too is a useful book. It's quite out-of-date in the iphone era, but gives a lot of insights when you have huge hardware/screen constraints.
also useful...maybe a little more out in left field... but if you think about design, influence and networks: connected. great read.
I compiled this list of references some time ago for myself and our students.
It is not complete by any means and is waiting there for updates!!
So, if you have any other books that should be included I'll be happy to add.
Designing for the Digital Age (Goodwin), I guess, is a good choice to start with.
