This book was definitely informative and taught me a lot about Project Management, but visually, it was hard to get through. This sounds like something trivial, but the human mind needs to be stimulated to stay focused on a subject, and the book's bland layout and color scheme did NOT help matters! Nice balance of focus on theoretical PM and then software procedures/strategies though.

A good support to the PMBOK as it explains the methods with examples on implementation

Nice book which gives a high level view of the project management as a profession for a person experienced in general management. The best part of the book is questions and case studies given at the end. Can be used as a study book for project management courses and also by students who are interested to know more about project management.
If you already into hard core project management you can give this book a miss. But yes, you can just glance through this to refresh your project management co
