Although it's written in with Java in mind, Head First design patterns is easily one of the best books about Design patterns out there.

I await a Patterns for Dummies book though, with baited breath :P

I'd add Design Patterns in C# by Metsker. It plays of the GoF book with C# in mind. It does seem to assume you have the GoF book for an extensive discussion of the pattern, but why wouldn't you have that book?
