    Books for GUI Design


    Hello All,

    Can anyone recommend a good book for GUI Design. I'm developping a UI for
    a Client-Server application in VB.

    Thank you in advance.

    There is also User Interface Design for Programmers by Joel Spolsky. It is
    an entertaining read and a good primer. . .
