I've heard about that book. I'll have to read it, thanks.
The LUG library has a rather decent book on application interfaces entitled
"The Humane Interface: New Directions for Designing Interactive Systems" by
Jef Raskin. Raskin was on the Macintosh team and apparently had a lot of
control of the final interface. The book itself is easy to read and very
insightful. Also suggested reading.
