Recommended Software Marketing Books

These are definitely my favorite software marketing books, and all are related to the marketing, sales, strategy, or the business of software. Most are fairly recent but I've kept one or two oldies but goodies - like "Crossing the Chasm" - because I think there's still a lot to be learnt from them. Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase after clicking through the link.

As time allows, I'll add my reviews/comments to each of these... but for now here's the list and the links, with those that I've reviewed listed below.
