The book "Managing Systems - Development 101" by James T. Karam is written with the engineer's perspective in mind, specifically targeted towards those technical types who find themselves advancing into positions requiring managerial and oversight responsibilities, in addition to their technical expertise.
As a specific technical type moving more into a managerial role myself, I found the book an easy read (being only 111 pages or so), but dense, in the sense that there are a lot of benchmark figures and information that are hard to assimilate in one simple reading. I'll be using this book as reference in the future.

This is great outline of succinct take-home messages. The subject material is timeless, and as new systems evolve, the advice from this author will remain relevant.

The book is practical and hands-on -- no pie in the sky theory stuff produced by some consulting company.
