There are multiple books on design patterns, it basically depends on what you're looking for.
Head First's book below is one that I found was an easy read and a great introduction to the patterns as well
as Design Patterns Explained. Design Patterns (GOF) book is one of the first, and most well-received
books on Design Patterns.


Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software

Design Patterns Explained: A New Perspective on Object-Oriented Design (2nd Edition)

Head First Design Patterns

Also, try C# 3.0 Design Patterns to understand about various patterns used by the .net framework.

I have learned about design patterns etc. from this book:Flexible, Reliable Software: Using Patterns and Agile Development. The book was an eye opener for me. Highly recommended.
I have read the Gang of Four book years before but found it a bit confusing.
