  • How to control change
  • Controlling the chaos of a project
  • What to do about the micromanaging client
  • How to handle meetings
  • How to communicate with your client

Very worth the small amount of $ this costs

Great info, succinct, practical information on managing short contracts and consulting gigs! Very applicable to PMI processes on a small, individual scale.

A good kick-starter

This book introduces the basics of project management and highlights the most essential elements. I would not use this book as a stand-alone since it is too simplistic, but is a good kick-starter since it has very useful insights.
