Books every IT manager must read, Part 1

I’m being asked frequently to recommend books and other materials for management. So this is going to be more a post for myself not to forget:

  1. Ben Horowitz. The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers
  2. Andrew S. Grove. High Output Management
  3. Frederick Brooks. The Mythical Man-Month: Essays on Software Engineering
  4. Daniel Kahneman. Thinking, Fast and Slow
  5. Nassim Nicholas Taleb. The Black Swan

Also I can highly recommend this recent article – http://www.brightball.com/articles/reality-driven-development-fixing-project-management-in-software

More to come.
