Designing Connected Content
by Mike Atherton and Carrie Hane

This book is spot-on, teaching readers about the importance of understanding the domain and how objects connect in the context of that domain. If you want to create products that are more future-proof and intuitive, this book is a must-read. It's (almost) 100% in-line with the principles of OOUX!
