On the general "Creativity" industry (with a focus on animation, but it applies to many similar ones):

Written by the president of Pixar, and contains many anecdotes about Pixar, and challenges of animation and general creative work.

That Grove book is on my TODO list. Thanks for the reminder. As real leadership / management books go, I thought Creativity Inc by Ed Catmull was both interesting and entertaining.

Ed Catmull, Co-Founder of Pixar, wrote a great book about building and running creative businesses in general, and Pixar in particular[1]. Well worth a read.
