      "Does not translate well into an audiobook"
      What would have made Project Management for Dummies better?

      A downloadable guide of some of the lists that they talk about or some downloadable tools. It's not that it is a bad book. It just doesn't translate well into an audiobook. It's basically a 3.5 hour long list of things to do before your next big project. You can imagine how frustrating it is to hear a very long list being read to you while you are trying to drive. Having at least an outline in hardcopy is a must.


      What three words best describe Brett Barry’s performance?

      Did a good job of reading a 3.5 hour list of things to do before your next big project.


      If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Project Management for Dummies?

      None


      Any additional comments?

      Please give some additional hardcopy downloads.

      "Good to read"
      What did you love best about Project Management for Dummies?

      The flow


      Would you be willing to try another book from Stanley Portny? Why or why not?

      Yes I will


      What about Brett Barry’s performance did you like?

      Yes


      Any additional comments?

      If it can have an PDF attachment with some of the info. It will help the read, and if it can use the same words in PMI it will make the connection faster

      "Nothing different"

      Not too bad, I have heard another Project management book so I didnt find anything particularly new. Not too bad for learning basics about PM
