great little overview

Would have liked more detail in the pdf, but the audio book was a great little overview -- something quicknto ground me in the midst of a convoluted project. Will buy the ebook and/or print book.

A good quick review of the subject, but very dry.

Listening to this is like listening to someone read their study guides aloud. They're interesting because they cover everything the course taught, but there is no real substance beneath the notes. To get the most of the notes, you've got to already have learned the subject.

Refer to this book as a reminder. Don't listen to this book as a learning source.

Good overview & reminder of the big points !

Good practical overview for the newbie to project management & checklist of "do I do that" for the more experienced project manager.
