Need books on time and project management


Recommended Posts

Now I am sure it will not get more trivial than this request, but I just wanted to drop in to ask whether you guys/gals can kindly point out "must-have" books on time and/or project management (I am thinking along the lines of "How to Win Friends" and "Code Complete" for the respective fields of social interaction and programming).

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Thomm

The Mythical Man Month By Frederick P Brooks was always one of my favorites. It deals with the development of the operating system for the IBM 360 and is at least 40 years old. I believe you can download copies of it now, but I don't know if that is legal.

Got it already, thank you!

Best regards,

Thomm

Thomm,

While waiting for the answers, maybe these'll help.

Here's a free Project Management Book (Moon, hope this is cool with you. If not, please remove. Am simply trying to help Thomm.)

I second the recommendation for "The Mythical Man-Month".

The best single book on project management I have met is "Peopleware", by Tom DeMarco and Tim Lister.

All the best,

John.
