Must-read User Interface Book?

As an outsider (aka. not a designer) and due to the lack of time to innovate, I want to create great UIs and great usability by example, by reading the greatest market studies and seeing the most beautiful and cutting edge UIs and usability researches.

Please point me to such resources: sites, books, everything goes. Help me not to reinvent the wheel.

    I would suggest searching ux.stackexchange for 'books' and you'll find a great list of resources to get started. But to create your own great UI, the best approach is to learn from others, practice, test and ship. Then repeat. – Todd Sieling Dec 16 '11 at 19:42

    A great place to see good UX is any Apple store. – DA01 Dec 16 '11 at 19:45

    When you say "see great UIs" are you looking for something like this: uiparade.com ? – Ben Brocka Dec 16 '11 at 19:48
  • In addition to what Todd said, we're happy to help you save time if you ask specific questions when a quick Google search doesn't turn up the answer. It's win-win. – Patrick McElhaney Dec 16 '11 at 20:54
  • @Ben Brocka: That's a nice example. Love it. – John Assymptoth Dec 18 '11 at 3:30
