Software Development Book List

I'm trying to read the most importants books on the subject of software development (and particulary the managing part of it). Research on Amazon has resulted in this short-list of 16 works by (in most cases) well-known authors in our field. Let me know if you, as a world-famous author of a major best-seller, appear to be missing from this list. I will order your book straight away! (Of course, you may also send me a free copy…)
