The definitive guide for IT project managers.
Rayna Wang
Pro: 1) An introductory reader on basic frameworks, concepts, and components of IT project management. 2) Much of the content is also applicable to generic project management. 3) Enriched with examples.

Con: I was hoping for more examples that are specific to the IT industry, and the examples were not discussed in depth, i.e. mainly a short description of the problem, without going into details about the problem-solving process.

Well it was helpful and it wasn't as painful to read as I feared.
Still....
*shudder*

For anyone who will be reading this: it's actually a good text. Solid, to the point, thorough, and interesting. The author tries to keep things spicy with stories and real world examples that are both relevant and fascinating.

Really well thought out textbook. Extremely easy to follow, with links for additional information in the electronic format, which I read, that are also pertinent to project management. Great resource.
Jonathan Tennis
Project Management is a tough subject to cover in book form and this is from a Project Manager who has read a fair number of PM related books.

My review is short and sweet - there are better books out there. The author covers the material just fine but both Mulcahy and Heldman cover it better. Because this has IT in the title, IT PMs will pick it up. It's more expensive than other books and really doesn't improve on what those others say.

Save the money and time and pass on this book.

This is another textbook for class. It's a pretty good intro to project management, particularly IT project management. There are some helpful case studies. It does emphasize planning to the nth degree. Depending on the size of the projects you'll be doing, that may or may not be overkill.

Recommends it for: All up-and-coming PMs
A solid intro to the realm of IT Project Management. It's provided a solid framework from which I can understand all the universal basics of project management and really helped me jumpstart my career.

for me as a 'project management newbie' this book gives me the right perspective to start and manage IT project management

Ugh. Dry. The only memorable thing about this book will be the constant onslaught of TLAs... (three letter acronyms.)

This book was oddly helpful for something assigned to read during grad school! It demystified the PMBOK. I'll be using this to study for my nursing informatics board certification after graduation.
