Start wih Steve Krug's Don't Make Me Think, then once the principles you've learned there are ingrained, move on here for more detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide to usability, Aug. 31 2002
Short and to the point, this book is the place to start for anyone involved in any way with websites of any type, from simple personal homepages to massive e-commerce sites. It doesn't require any technical knowledge, and it sets your priorities in order, particularly the importance of user testing (which, for low-rent developers, can be done even more cheaply than Krug suggests - just substitute paper-and-pencil for the video camera). Read this first, and once you've digested it, move on to Jakob Nielsen's Designing Web Usability for more detail.
