Mark,
Decline and Fall was followed by Rise and Resurrection, both by Yourdon. And both worth reading, though he probably won't tell you anything you don't already know. The premise of Search for Stupidity made me laugh out loud when I read it.
You might also enjoy The Manager Pool, though the managers at amazon.com seem to have supressed this mischevious work.
It's an antipatterns book about management.

Yeah, I actually have the latter book. It wasn't til I got it that I learned for the first book. :-)
Well, I've have to save The Manager Pool for the next round. I think I've got enough at the moment. :-) Thansk for mentioning it to me.

Another excellent book you didn't mention is The Career Programmer: Guerilla Tactics For An Imperfect World

Interestingly, amazon.de suggests to buy this together with ".NET Game Programming" - speaking about imperfect worlds, I guess...
