I've collected a few of my favorite and oft-referenced reads for eng management and general eng/tech leadership. There are a million great management books out there (and a million stinkers, too) - I'll save those for another day. Note that several of these are geared towards ICs (individual contributors) - that's intentional! A lot of my management/mentorship style has been having a relevant article to share about a topic.

(this is a little less built-out - it's just a set of links that I recalled while assembling the above, but are more relevant for the tech lead side of things)
