I just finished reading Hacker's & Painters by Paul Graham and highly recommend it. If my recommendation isn't enough for you internet-land, check out his essay What the Bubble Got Right. There's a bunch of other great essays on his site as well - a good number of them ended up in Hacker's & Painters.
Update: Here's an essay of Graham's that analyzes the great talent America has for designing films and software in contrast to our generally crappy ability to design cars and cities.
