This is among the best and most comprehensive and--for me--perhaps the most influential. I read it about 10 years ago and, among other things, it helped me begin to see the relationship between methodology and creativity.
That's not really what the book is about but it is saturated with background insights like that. Total Design is Pugh's philosophy and methodology of product development. Basically it show I have read a number of books to better understand and manage the product design process.
Basically it shows the relation of design to the whole product development process and indeed its relation to the whole life of the product--no aspect of the real life of a product is outside the purview of design. He employs some of the insights of Taguchi methods and QFD to articulate a comprehensive approach to product development.
It's a classic, in my opinion.
