This is book is recommended on Jacob Nielsen's web site, however it's from 1994.

Can you recommend one of these or another book that you find comprehensive enough to start trying usability testing at your company?

I own "230 Tips and Tricks for Better Usability Testing". It really has valuable tips but they are for people who have experience with performing tests.
I think I need something more comprehensive, like a guide for a beginner. The latest book from J. Nielsen is excellent, it covers many topics but not much about testing.
"Don't Make me Think" by Steve Krug
That's a great book (I highly recommend it -he came out with a second version), but I have a feeling they want something even more detailed.
I would still look on the NNGroup site. They have a TON of books there, and not all were written by the principals.
