Good "pocket guide" to PM. As other posters have indicated, you're not going to learn project management from this book. However, it does provide a nice summary of key points and some things to think about as you endeavor to manage your first project.

Doesn't go into much detail, so you won't be able to do any formal project management after reading this. Provides a high-level overview that's enough to give you an idea of why you might want a PMO and what the terms mean, but don't expect it to convince a non-believer.

My first book to read on PM, that was during second semester 3rd year mechanical engineering college. I was given an assignment to study PM and teach it to my class mates in IDT, student activity group(industrial development team, ain-shams university).

This book is very simple and to the point, it just gives you a basic idea about PM. It only covers the main idea and concepts, but doesn't go into details.

I think it's good for non-project managers. Since a project manager need to read 100 times i

My dad lent me this book to help me with some new responsibilities at work. It is an excellent overview of project management and really helped me get my feet on the ground. There are, of course, many more in-depth books out there, but if you're looking for something to get you started or something to refer back to as a handy guideline, this book is very solid.

A bit of a snoozer, but probably a good overview of Project Management. However, after reading this you're not going to be ready to go out and lead a project. It's just a general overview of some aspects of project management...nothing too specific.

The book delivers on its promise. It's a good starter to the world of project management, with enough insight to equip and enough lure to get you curious.

Is a nice short book on project management to give a newcomer a quick glance at the concerns.
Apr 12, 2011 Tania rated it it was ok
It's OK, not too difficult to read and somewhat repetitive in terms of the examples used.

And don't think that if you read this book, you'll know how to start managing a project.

It is simple and easy to read and gives an introductory level about project managemebt, however there are lots of redunduncies and boring repetitions.
This has been a really useful book. Not a John LeCarre thriller, excellent introduction to Project Management.

OK approach to PM work. Some simplistic parts but a great refresher...

Good explanation of the project management principles. Predictably dry, but but not as bad as it could be. I'd recommend to anyone who manages projects at work.
