iAmNaN75762yCongrats! Can't think of any books off the bat, but be there for your people as a CO-worker, and not a BOSS. Support them, don't push them under the bus. Be a leader, not a manager. Celebrate their life events. Buy them donuts. I'm not joking.

Books can't make you a good manager, your behavior can. Be a good colleague, give them a way to go, help them on their doubts and work with them on few things. Give them a shade if something went wrong as a team rather than blaming them.
