If you are a beginner, this is a good book to read about IT Program/Project Management.

This is a good read for those who have had some experience managing projects, or interested in managing IT projects, but have moved beyond the "For dummies" level of reading.

An IT Specific Project Management book. Not a special one, but good enough for a start for an ITPM.
