IT Manager's Handbook: Getting Your New Job Done
by Bill Holtsnider, Brian D. Jaffe (Amazon.com has it)

I was a PC LAN Engineer (aka Desktop Analyst) at that time...thinking I could do a better job than my boss. I was ready for that next move...read the book....and since there was enough information in there to motivate me to ask the VP of IT to show me how to be a manager....one year later, I'm an IT Director....running 2 Depts and 8 direct reports. It worked for me! Best Wishes!
