Peopleware Productive Projects and Teams, 3rd Ed, Tom DeMarco, 2013

This is the best book on software group management. Originally written in the mainframe era, but revised and extended and strongly recommended by Joel Spolsky.

Many large software projects fail, and the failure is generally claimed to be Technical. DeMarco explains that the failure is actually Social, explains what often goes wrong, and explains in detail how to build a software group to avoid failures.
