    "Good content, bad narrator"

    This book contains a lot of useful information about project management, it is great for a person will little to no experience as well as for someone experienced who wants to understand why certain tactics do not work... It is not the book about motivation - no advices on how to grow your team and make team members happy...
    The big disappointment is the narrator - he tries to speak as fast as he can without letting you to even get a millisecond to make a note in your mind.... Can't make myself hear this book one more time only because of it...

    Great book that will help you triage new or current projects that you want to manage better. Does a great job of delivering the basics of project management.

    I am a new project manager and thought I would hear something that was not common sense.

    "To the point"
    What made the experience of listening to What You Need to Know About: Project Management the most enjoyable?

    Love the point to point style. Helps when you're trying to remember things. Unfortunately, there were many references of other books, that I wasn't familiar with, made listening of these books alittle difficult to remember which book I'm interested in diving further.

    Where does What You Need to Know About: Project Management rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rank this one a very good #2.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book takes you through from the basic to advanced knowledge of project management.


    What does Colin Mace bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    There is emphasis on key parts of good project management.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The end is closer than the beginning

    "A good down and dirty primer."

    Simple and basic listen on getting started with project management. Probably a little too basic for anyone with any project management training though.

    "Excellent Narrator Paired With a Great Book."

    Long enough to be useful and short enough to be manageable. Subjects are broken down to make learning easy. I also thought the author had a great sense of humor. The narrator knocks it out of the park too.

    Bottom Line:
    I learned A LOT about project management, well worth the buy.

    "straight forward project management"

    I've been a project manager for over 8 years and I seem to have lost some of the basics along the way. this book did an excellent job of reviewing those essential things that a project or program manager should know and practice. I especially like the section on getting your life back.

    "Solid project management stuff!"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. I like the narration style of the narrator, and the content of the book. The only thing I wish is that there are visual aids to help along the way, but alas it's an audiobook. I really enjoyed it. I would recommend anyone especially if you're new and the project management industry.

    Great book. A must have book and very well delivered ! Complex techniques made simple. If your just starting up as a PM or well versed and hardened this book will provide a fresh and informative approach.

    Also full of recommended reads and resources.

    "Good starting point for aspirant project managers"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to this book in one sitting and again chapter by chapter taking notes and applying them to my own project plans. I am by no means an expert project manager but have sufficient experience to know that my skills will improve by acting on the content of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    It is a good source of further recommended readings and a good way to learn project management vocabulary
