As an aside, if you want to get into game design, I cannot recommend Game Design: Theory and Practice by Richard Rouse highly enough.

Everyone else has already recommended The Art of Game design by Jesse Schell so other than that I'd recommend Game Design: Theory and Practice (2nd edition) by Richard Rouse III, chapter 23 is entirely about level design and over 20 pages cover subjects such as level flow, aesthetics, exploration and elements of what makes a good level.

The bonus of the book is about writing design documents and having two appendixes as showing what a design document can look like (I say can because of course due to everyone's is different, ranging from post it notes to full fledged documents) but still a very nice section.

Game Design: Theory and Practice has taught me a lot, and it's a good read.
