Good Book, in a Great Series. Perfect Performance.

The "What You Need to Know About:" Series is what "For Dummies" "Idiot's Guide" books should have been. All the introductory guidance to get you started, but none of the embarrassment, or insult.

This one on Project Management is a near perfect primer on the otherwise terribly complicated world of Project Management (try Googling it, you'll never know where to start). It is also a well rounded introduction to best practices. The references to additional resources are excellent, and are mentioned throughout where applicable.

Anyone who wants to become a project manager professionally, should start here, even if only to get cleared up on the jargon, and vernacular first. Anyone looking to actually get things done more effectively, by managing their own projects with less confusion in their lives, may need go no further than this book.

Colin Mace's delivery is superb. I could listen to his reading all day.

No but it is easy to listen to except for references to external content.

Does a good job of covering the material without any real examples :)

Overall good

Good overall review and beginner view of project management. Not a good book to read for prep for the PMP exam. Uses real world examples to show how project management is done. Worth a read but not for study prep.

Useful by sticking to the reality of the situation

Out of all the books I've read about Project Management this one seemed to stick to what has proven to work in the world without getting tied up in the symantics of process and compliance. Keep it simple s... that's what I was looking for.

Good way to start learning basics

for someone who has worked on projects in the past but hasnt had any formal training, its a good way to understand the principles.

cut through the chase

It is factual and to the point with ample references to further investigates if required - the way subject matter must be presented - to the point

better and hard copy

overall I think the book is good. However my biggest issue is I think this would be much better in a hard copy. constantly references links and tables .

Nothing new in this book
