Leadership books

Hi Folks,

I am looking for great books on leadership at tech organizations and startups.

Specifically I am interested in books written by the actual practitioners and leaders. I like learning from the perspective you get from the "trenches". I don't prefer books written by observers and journalists about a company. (Although I realize some books are written by or with the help of ghost writers).

Here's a list of books that I am working through right now. What else would you recommend or add to it?
