Others that I used to read have become somewhat inactive. You know who you are …
Implementing Lean Software Development, Mary and Tom Poppendieck, 2007.
Comments: good source for lean software, but also draws a lot from lean manufacturing. Recommending to people in other disciplines as well. I’ll post a more complete review when I finish the book.
