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.

Content good, narrator dull

This was my first introduction to formal project management training. I found the content and detail pitched correctly for what this audio book was supposed to achieve. Listening to the narrator made it difficult to continue focus with some sections due to the monotone. I would suggest having a couple of narrators and taking sections, at least there would be some pitch changes.

this is for managing sucessful business project.

I am student and was expecting a book on student projects. This is about finishing business projects. I didn't find the book entertaining but it has some valuable insights. Always treat your employees with a nice lunch after sucess.

Overly basic

This is like an introduction to project management concepts with no depth. I'm disappointed.

Just the important details.

Just the important details.
sometimes, we just need the important details, "the meat and potatoes". Harvard Business Review delivers.

not worth buying

The book contains very, very basic information presented in a boring way. Very little a listener can learn if he nows at least a little bit about PM. You could use it if having problems to fall asleep.

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.
