This is a brilliant book. Really gives you a great base to start learning UX, and a great book to refer back to. I always recommend this to people who want to get into UX. And I also recommend it to developers and management teams (project owners, BA's etc etc) as it gives them an insight into why we do/ don't do certain things.
Have you seen the reading list on this forum? It's a great list compiled by a number of people of useful books for UXers to read. I'm not sure how to link to it here but I'm sure @HAWK could point us in the right direction
