Graphic design is a wide knowledge area, so if you want to be a good and professional designer I'm afraid reading one book won't be enough.
Here are some great books for designers:

"How to Be a Graphic Designer without Losing Your Soul" - Adrian Shaughnessy
"Design, Form, and Chaos" - Paul Rand
"Pioneer of Swiss Graphic Design" - Josef Muller-Brockmann
"Designing Programmes" - Karl Gerstner
"TD 63-73" - United Editions
"Pentagram Marks" - Pentagram Partners
"Manuals 1" / "Manuals 2" - United Editions
"Type Only" - United Editions
"As Little Design as Possible" - Dieter Rams
"How to" - Michael Beirut
"A Designer`s Art" - Paul Rand
"Thoughts on Design" - Paul Rand
"Scandinavian Modern Design" - David McFadden
"100 Years of Swiss Graphic Design" - Christian Brandle, Museum of Design Zurich.
"Swiss Graphic Design: The Origins and Growth of an International Style" - Richard Hollis

Hi @ahmadassaf

I understand that you are a beginner so I got Five (5) simple books:
1)A Practical Guide to Designing for the Web -

2) The Principles of Beautiful Web Design -

3) White Space is Not Your Enemy -

4) Typographic Web Design: How to Think like a Typographer -

5) Design of Everyday Things -

you should read in the order I have listed them to get the most out of them. Youshouldn't try to take the easy way out if you want to do Graphic design as a professional.

Have a nice day.

Hi ,
You should try anything on/about Frank Lloyd Wright. He's the best architect/ designer i know. he designed the monroe house on Maui, and his house, the Waterfall House, built around a waterfall.

If you're interested in knowing about him, he was a great architectural designer, but no one wanted to work with him because he was so demanding and had what had seemed like the oddest ideas.

He once had a brick wall built, and after choosing the brick color, he chose two different grout colors- one identical to the bricks, one very different. He said to have all vertical 'lines' the same color as the brick, and all horizontal lines the other color. The brick layer refused, saying it was ridiculous, but didn't see the bigger picture. If the wall had been built like that, at a glance or from far away, the wall would appear as horizontal stripes, instead of the original brick overlay.

Every time Wright would design a house, he would design everything inside the house. He would design every piece of furniture, everything inside and out of the house. He even designed the dishes and silverware for some houses. He was such a perfectionist, in fact, that he once visited the owners of a house he designed. When he saw they were using different plates and silverware than the ones he had designed for the house, he would knock over plates and dishes, and throw them and break them.

His work is genius, i suggest you consider looking into it.
Look up his Waterfall House, for an example.
