Dynamics of Software Development

A very easy read (it's in a humourous tone). This book is from Microsoft Press, by Jim McCarthy, who was the head coach of the Microsoft Visual C++ team which consisted of 100-200 people. The book's subtitle is "... 54 rules for delivering great software on time."

Some of the most interesting rules, that apply to eXtreme Programming, software release management, and so forth include: - Establish a shared vision - Burn-Out - Multi-release tecnology plan - Milestones (the Mozilla project handles these quit well) - Will add more to this list later.

chapters.ca lists it, but does not have it available. Amazon.com does have it.
