The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master is reasonably good. More around coding than about coding, Hackers and Painters is also good. Agile and Iterative Development: A Manager's Guide is a nice introduction to agile methods and why they work (in simple language that even non-programmers can get).

    I will second the recommendation for The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master. I learned a great deal from this book, and it is well worth the time to read.

      I will third the recommendation for this book: it actually sits beside my bed and I re-read it from time to time..
