I self-taught those principles decades ago with "About Face 2.0", "The Design of Everyday Things" and "Don't Make Me Think". Though old, I know they provide solid principles because I still find them relevant today.

These come from an era before HCI was a professional discipline taught in schools. I suspect newer books don't teach these general principles because they take for granted that a professional will have learned them already through their formal training, so they can focus on specifics.
