The Worst Audio Book EVER!

I listen to Audible titles like it’s my job & this one has the dubious honor of being the ABSOLUTE WORST. There is zero information on project management systems, other than to list them & give a one-sentence description of each (about 2 hours into the book). A Google or YouTube search provides more information on systems & processes than this entire audio book. The book is consists of common sense, general knowledge information about what project planners do & why their role is important for an organization. Zero to do with the subtitle. Nothing on the specifics of project management. Also, the writing was so awkward as to be noticeable & jarring. It sounded like it was auto-translated from another language. And as if all that weren’t enough, the narrator sounds like Hal 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey on Haldol. I played it at 1.5 times speed which did nothing to help the monotone and misplaced inflections. I don’t usually write reviews, but there were no fewer than 3 requests for a review throughout the book, so I felt compelled. I lost 3 plus hours of my life on this one, but at least I know now that I can withstand the auditory equivalent of bamboo shoots under my fingernails. If I save one person from wasting his/her time here it will be time well-spent.

do not recommend

very little information in this book. just talks about what a manager is and how great it would be to be one. I tried to skip ahead to see if there are any useful tidbits but there are none. found he just repeated things and danced around sharing info on how to to actually perform the job. not even worth $10

do not buy

The grammar is horrendous. There are a few buzzwords and facts thrown in, but no deep underatanding or conveyance of concepts.

Retalk- no actual project management skills explained

I made it to chapter 5. Couldn’t do it anymore. Very basic. Did not add any value to my knowledge.

Not really helpful

The book was trying to sell me on the idea. Very few realistic practices were shared. Disappointed

Is this a joke?

There is no way this book was serious, if a middle schooler turned this in, they would be lucky to get a C. The entire audiobook is a rambling, unprofessional mess that sounds like a high schooler with a thesaurus dictated it using an iPhone, and hired a voice actor to read his half finished product. I am completely convinced that there was no editor, as you can hear the narrator make simple grammatical errors, and struggle with the confusing punctuation. I gave him three stars because he was actually pretty good, but I couldn’t give him any more than that because he lacked the judgment to set the book on fire and throw it at the author. I’m not normally mean, but I paid actual money to have these idiots waste my time. If you love listening to aggressively stupid people confidently give advice on topics they don’t understand, this book is the gold standard.

Save your time and money for

Read the summary you'll receive all the info that is given in the entire book there. After reading the book twice back to back in hopes I missed it the first time, I still failed to find information that was useful. He doesn't explain in detail about anything. This book will leave you with more questions than answers. And not in a good way. The author is literally begging for reviews at the end of every chapter. I was hoping this would be a good insight but it has failed to reach that standard. I feel I should have bought "project management for dummies." Save your time and invest into a book you'll actually receive info from.

Not educational at all

This is the most boring, non-educational book I've ever listened to. It sounds more like one of those phoney new hire training videos. I would love to be refunded my money for this purchase.

Over the Top Enthusiasm

Good basic knowledge and mentions other sources to gain more advanced and specialized knowledge. Goes a little too far in bragging about this book even to the end of it.

Useless, a load of generalistic ideas.

Very general introduction, the author was clearly paid to sponsor certificate-granting institutions. Learned nothing, thankful I did not pay for this but still wasted my monthly credit.

Didn't finish.

Didn't enjoy this at all - really basic and heavily tailored towards a career in PM rather than day to day management of projects in working life. Didn't finish.

Robotic and Cheesy

There is good information in the book, but the delivery and bad grammer was really off putting, if some of the Project Management methods in the publication were applied to the delivery of the book this would have helped this project.

Very useful for 1st year beginners

It's really good at explaining the concept of managing a project, the do's, the don'ts, the experienced you may encounter and also what tools will be useful. The one thing that let this audio book down was the individuals method of speaking. It's really distracting and makes it harder to absorb the information.

The only book I've ever read that teaches nothing

utter rubbish. Narrator sends you to sleep. If I heard the term project management once, I heard it a thousand times in this book. Don't waste your time on this.
