Hey Rachel,
NZ is great. Getting an inside look at the film industry and visual effects is amazing!

For product design, my recommendation is The Simplicity Shift by Scott Jenson. You can download the full pdf at http://www.jensondesign.com/download.html

Another good one that really explains "the process" of analyzing you personas is About Face by Alan Cooper. It also has a lot of specific design principles with visual examples.

The Design of Everyday Things is definitely a great book as well, but it discusses critique more than design.

I hope that helps. I'm not sure what kind of product you're interested in, but the general design principles are fairly versatile.
