Watts S Humphrey is one of the authors who inspired me back in the 1990s when I read his book "Managing the Software Process". I try to follow many of the lessons he taught in the first book.

Not particularly long, and full of many nuggets of wisdom.

Humphrey tends towards the waterfall / upfront prerequisites / planning style of development but in many cases makes a good argument for its necessity (i.e. in big software projects).

Really good book to discuss the many working relationships in software teams and how to improve them.
