    "Exceptional education."

    Great book for understanding project management, almost thoroughly. Though there is a few supplemental books one should read to better understand this field, but this book could literally take you as far as you want to go in project management.

    "simplistic, not the least bit informative"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The author is way too simplistic in his explanations. He offers little if any examples. In my opinion, a terrible book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing from this author.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Colin Mace?

    Not a viable question.


    What character would you cut from What You Need to Know About: Project Management?

    The entire premise of their assumptions.

    "Excellent book"

    Covers the fundamental things you need to do as a Project Manager. It is also a good book for learning how to get projects done.

    "Very nice foundation for any project manager."
    What did you love best about What You Need to Know About: Project Management?

    It sets clear guides for how to plan for and manage projects so that there is little mystery as to how you're project if doing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's very applicable and so you'll want to implement the lessons immediately.


    Any additional comments?

    Get a hard copy to accompany the book. There are too many references, lists and call outs to process only through audio.

    "Good read for project managers"

    I've been a project manager for 3 years and I still felt this book had helpful information that I could take and apply to my work daily. They say you don't really get something until you've heard it a few times, this rings true with project management methodologies.

    "Need the attachments in a pdf to make this worthwh"
    What did you like best about What You Need to Know About: Project Management? What did you like least?

    Very crisp and to the point, with an entertaining narration. But, as my headline states, without the attachments/internal references, there's a big gap.


    What about Colin Mace’s performance did you like?

    He has an engaging tone and inflection, I would enjoy him as a professor.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Business book, not really applicable.


    Any additional comments?

    Of all the project management books I have listened to/read to date, this one is the best mix of strategica and tactical. Very thought provoking, and actionable information.
