Greg and Tech Writers:

I'm half-way through another book on GUI design: Designing Object-Oriented User
Interfaces by Dave Collins, Benjamin-Cummings, ISBN 0-8053-5350-X.

It's the next step past the style guides (including my own). He describes types
of conceptual models, action/object and object/action interactions, the look
vs. the interaction, how to create a design, and in an appendix, an explanation
of object-oriented programming.

Collins is a very clear writer and the book has the feel of a lot of experience
behind it (like JoAnn Hackos's Managing Your Documentation Projects does). I
recommend it for anyone serious about doing GUI design, and also for anyone who
simply wants to know more about OO programming (you get the GUI design
information as a bonus).
