A timeless classic on managing an IT organisation and even IT projects filled with several short chapters and war stories. The amount of wisdom and insight presented here is tremendous and trendsetting. ( )

A little dated now, but the classic exposition on the socio-dynamics of software projects, and what is required from a work environment to let good engineers just get on with the job. Many software engineering managers should still read this book. One of the last places I was at, the manager hadn’t even heard of it — I was flabbergasted. Needless to say, he drove his project into the ground like the ignorant moron that he was. ( )

An amazing book that is extremely dense with practical tips for creating the best Teams possible. I highly recommend this book and will be rereading it again several times in the future. ( )
