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.
Read in college but decided it was worth keeping as a reference.

Excellent reading
This was the textbook for my "Leadership" course.
This book was rather boring and long-winded to me. I believe that some concepts were droned on about in such a way that pages could have been shaved off of the book size. The author repeated himself and at times, contradicted himself from chapter to chapter.
I think my main dislike with this book was the way it was taught in class, so no fault of the writer there.
I liked the quizzes and self assessments that peppered the chapter even if they didn

Recommends it for: people that suffer from insomnia
This book had certain passages that were a little hard to understand, but for the most part, it was simplistic. It was repetitive in spots too. I'm so glad that I am done with this course.
