Peopleware was a good read. It does a good job of throwing a lot of conventional management wisdom on its head, and gives a good treatment to best-of-breed management for software engineers. Like most books full of truths, a lot of the ideas seem obvious and intuitive upon reading, but I don’t think the sense presented in the book is particularly common. Though the first portion of the book is dated by technology standards, the material is as fresh as the day it was written, and I think this is a text invaluable to anyone working in the software engineering field, especially those who wish to manager. 8/10.
