I'm looking for suggestions for books for a person new to management.

I work for a friend who is new to her role in management. She has a lot of talent but is barely treading water in her leadership position. I'd like to help her new role without upstaging her and without speaking down to her. I think that approachable management skills books would help her fill-out her new position. I would like to help her wrap her mind around her changing responsibilities and support her in her new position.
Specifically, we work in a restaurant/bar. She is the new general manager and I am the kitchen manager. Previously she was just a bartender and now she is running the entire restaurant.
Most importantly, we have been friends for over ten years and I want to make sure that we remain friends regardless of our professional interactions.
And I have to admit that this question is influenced by this question
