From the standpoint of a designer that must display technical information, there is no better bible than the series of books by Edward Tufte:

  • The Visual Display of Quantitative Information
  • Envisioning Information
  • Visual Explanations: Images and Quantities, Evidence and Narrative
  • Beautiful Evidence

I re-read these books (or page through them) every time I'm stuck with a tricky design problem.
