Eric Evans is the author of Domain Driven Design, a text which explains the importance of having a software closely related to the real domain it models; the book presents best practices, principles and techniques based on real experience.
I found it challenging but very interesting, but one friend of mine found it thick as a brick. Luckily for M. (and I'm sure for many other people out there) InfoQ has released Domain Driven Design Quickly, which does not introduce new concepts but summarizes the essence of what DDD is, drawing mostly on Evans' book as well as other sources.
You can download a free online version, but you are invited to support the work and buy a print copy.
