Easier to read than the PMBOK
Shawn Buckle
You're not going to walk away a PMP-certified project manager after reading this book, but it is the first step. It's aptly named "Fast Forward" as that is what the author does, touching upon most areas of project management from a high-level and providing the general structure, tools and organization of it.

Recommended for those fresh to the discipline, but if you have any past experience, most of it will be well understood.

This book was part of a Project Management course I've been taking. Reading what I did, I thought it had great insight into the role of a PM and how it is important to business. While I wouldn't necessarily have it in my home library, I was happy to have enjoyed learning what it had to offer.
I took a two-day class on project management this fall. This book was strongly recommended as a textbook to accompany the class. I appreciate being brought up to speed on the process and philosophy of project management, but this book was kind of tedious to read.
Very useful, excellent intro course into project management and a solid prep to become PMP-certified. Like many business books, though, it's pretty dry and not something to be downed in a couple sittings...

Very good read to get a view of what project management is all about.
It's what I do for a living, so I guess I should read a book on how to do it.
