Project Management: Best Practices for IT Professionals should be a safe bet.
When it comes to project management books, there is hardly one book that has it all. Consider some of these in addition:
Peopleware
Software Project Survival Guide
Radical Project Management
Rapid Development

Another good one is:
Effective Project Management by Robert K. Wysocki, Rudd McGary
The third edition includes completely new material on adaptive and extreme project management.
I will soon publish a review of it in the bunkhouse. I'll let you know when it is up.

Browse Alistair Cockburn's site for books and papers. He emphasizes humans in software development.

That must be unusual. I'm still getting acclimatised to the "grunts" in trenches approach.
