Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams 3rd Edition, Kindle Edition
About the Author
Tom DeMarco and Timothy Lister are principals of The Atlantic Systems Guild (www.systemsguild.com), a consulting firm specializing in the complex processes of system building, with particular emphasis on the human dimension. Together, they have lectured, written, and consulted internationally since 1979 on management, estimating, productivity, and corporate culture.
Tom DeMarco is the author or coauthor of nine books on subjects ranging from development methods to organizational function and dysfunction, as well as two novels and a book of short stories. His consulting practice focuses primarily on expert witness work, balanced against the occasional project and team consulting assignment. Currently enjoying his third year teaching ethics at the University of Maine, he lives in nearby Camden.
Timothy Lister divides his time among consulting, teaching, and writing. Based in Manhattan, Tim is coauthor, with Tom, of Waltzing With Bears: Managing Risk on Software Projects (Dorset House Publishing Co., Inc., 2003), and of Adrenaline Junkies and Template Zombies: Understanding Patterns of Project Behavior (Dorset House Publishing Co., Inc., 2008), written with four other principals of The Atlantic Systems Guild. He is a member of the IEEE, the ACM, and the Cutter IT Trends Council, and is a Cutter Fellow.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As a book for modern management techniques it's dated, but to pick up some great examples and see the beginning of agile thinking this book is fascinating, and it will leave you wondering why so many good lessons still haven't been hammered home in many organisations.
I have been a software developer for almost 30 years and have witnessed first hand so many "failures" (or so called "successes" that should have been labelled failures) that it is so refreshing to see that it does not have to be so complicated.
This should be mandatory read to anyone managing software projects.
It does not take long to read and would have improved so much most projects I participated in.
Well worth the time and money
I would have given 5 stars if author has structured this book in a way that content related to most of working environments covered first to keep you wanting to read the book. Otherwise, it is a 5 star book.
DeMarco and Lister have been around the block alright. There is so much "common sense" advice in this book about managing PEOPLE.
Your engineers need an enviroment to work in as you will discover in this text.
