a good starter.

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.

Good content, bad narrator

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...

To the point

What made the experience of listening to What You Need to Know About: Project Management the most enjoyable?

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.

A good down and dirty primer.

Simple and basic listen on getting started with project management. Probably a little too basic for anyone with any project management training though.

Excellent Narrator Paired With a Great Book.

Long enough to be useful and short enough to be manageable. Subjects are broken down to make learning easy. I also thought the author had a great sense of humor. The narrator knocks it out of the park too.

Bottom Line:
I learned A LOT about project management, well worth the buy.
