Gerald Weinberg's The Psychology of Computer Programming is a classic, well worth reading. Also second the recommendations for The Mythical Man Month and Peopleware

His Becoming a Technical Leader (http://www.dorsethouse.com/books/btl.html) is directly addressed at this issue.

I think its good, but it's been so long since I was at this stage and read it (late '80s) I'm not 100% sure.

That said, I've not regretted one bit reading every apropos book Weinberg had written through the '90s (which is about when I stopped reading these sorts of books).
