Three I'm familiar with, all recommended:

'Gates', Stephen Manes [1]

'Show Stopper!: The Breakneck Race to Create Windows NT and the Next Generation at Microsoft', G.P. Zachary [2]

'Microsoft in the Mirror', Karin Carter [3]

But I agree with the parent that 'Programmers At Work' is a great book.

Thank you very much, I'll have a look at those 3. Completely agree about the parent book, it does seem very interesting. Although potentially only available in the UK as an import.

I couldn't recommend "Show Stopper!" enough. Wonderful book!
