    "Probably good as an actual book"

    Too confusing to listen to and understand fully. Probably a better text book than audio book.

    "Simply great info on project management"

    This is an excellent book on project management. I have been working with project management for many years and I did not have high expectations for this “…for dummies” listen, but I was very positively surprised.
    The UK version I listened to is very well narrated. The book is well organized and full of good explanations from anything on how to start a project till how to end it - and everything in between. Each chapter is in its right, timed place, again very well explained and exemplified. Many ideas on what to keep in mind when this or that happens.
    If there is one book to read on project management, I would recommend this overview book. From this book as a primer it is easy to find and understand information on project management generally.

    "Just Basics"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Good if you just want the basics of project management. Absolute waste of time if you are planing on taking the PMP certification test.


    Was Project Management for Dummies worth the listening time?

    No

    "Good recap of the theory"

    Nicely read and easy written! As an experienced project manager I didn't learn anything new, but a good walk through of the theory of project management with realistic examples!

    "great book. helps with all kinds of management."

    considering the book gives the impression it's purely beneficial to those looking to define their slot of manage as 'project management', the book is filled with lots of helpful information. as a mechanical engineer I find this content useful is a multiple of ways. recommended for anyone who is not a project management wanting to advance their scope into management techniques.
