Good overall review and beginner view of project management. Not a good book to read for prep for the PMP exam. Uses real world examples to show how project management is done. Worth a read but not for study prep.
chapters one and two, I didn't feel that I learned anything. Chapters 4 5 and 6, offered new concepts to project management. Chapter 7 and 8 we're interesting. Overall a very good book for anyone breaking into PMP, and a good reminder for anybody who already has the certification. I would recommend to others.
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.
That I was listening in anticipation of something I could use in my job.
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.
I would rank this one a very good #2.
The book takes you through from the basic to advanced knowledge of project management.
There is emphasis on key parts of good project management.
The end is closer than the beginning
This book gives no helpful advice. It just describes what time management is. If you want helpful advice try 15 Secrets Successful People Know About Time Management. It is full of advice
"Love this book, as a technical, not project, mgr"
I really enjoyed this book, both for the content, the writing style (can be lighthearted and humorous), and the person reading the audio version of this book.
Having worked with, and sometimes acted as (through necessity) a project manager for short periods of my career, I think it gives solid advice that is proven.
The author doesn't align specifically with any one given project management methodology, but gives practical advice on managing project of any size.
He also provides a few excellent techniques and "5 steps to follow to..." type of approach,
I bought the physical copy of the book after listening to the audio book and enjoying (and learning ) a lot.
humorous, well paced and intonation.
the physical book layout and quality of print seemed a little disappointing after the excellent audio book.
Great book - enjoyable style - couldn't stop listening
So much better than the dry and boring Prince2 stuff
"Great introduction to Project Management"
It was a great insight to project management as I am totally new. it has alot of great tips and good advice for beginners. it was about the right length for me.
"An excellent read. Punchy and to the point"
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"
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.
It is a good source of further recommended readings and a good way to learn project management vocabulary
I have enjoyed listening to this book and will definitely use it to manage all my projects.
"Amazing,suitable for any project, practical advice"
This book goes though things step by step. It also has lots of analogies . This book suggests lots of additional reading material.
Funny analogies about project management and real life
It’s a lot more engaging than reading a book with comical remarks
I personal related to lots of the things he talked about and found the advice great
worth the money
Clear out line, good sequence. Worth a read and the money spent on the book
