Format: Paperback
Part of my job is to manage multiple projects on a day to day basis. I have therefore been looking for a good book to help with improving the Project Management process. This book is the first (of maybe 20+) that I have read about Project Management that is short and to the point. It is clearly written by somebody who not only knows what he is talking about but also somebody who understands how to get his message across. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
Hardened project managers may find the slightly tongue in cheek presentation a little hard to take, but this book is aimed at those who want to know more about the methodology without having to dive into the deep water of "serious" text books. Goeff Reiss manages to tread a fine line between lightness of touch and depth of focus. I can recommend this to anyone wanting to know more about the subject.

Format: Paperback
If you are new to Project Management, and even if you aren't, this is a cracking book to have.

It's coffee table readable but don't let that undermine it - its all sound stuff and plenty of "old hands" in project management would do well to read it as a refresher in the fundamentals.

You won't learn any fancy techniques - if you want those, look elsewhere, but, as it says on the cover, it Demystifies Project Management. (Which may upset some !!) However, once you know what it is, you have a better chance of doing it yourself.

Have a read of the first intro chaper on the Amazon site - if you don't like it, maybe it's not for you.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book on the basis of reviews. Its an easy read and is a great overview to the whole process. Sure, in 200 pages you can't go into detail on every topic but the book doesn't try to. It is a great start point from which you can use the more classic reference books as support material. I'm now buying my second copy as I've already given away the first.... and I'll probably be back for more.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was introduced to Geoff Reiss' book whilst doing my MBA. Since then I have kept a copy to hand ever since. I'm now on my fourth copy as I keep lending it to clients and friends and rarely seeing it back.
The style is readable, the concepts are well explained and you can dip in or read it end to end.
One of the nicest things about the book is that it is concise (200 odd pages). Obviously Geoff Reiss doesn't feel the need of academic authors to pad their work with verbiage and vast quantities of references. Perhaps the lesson here is "Those who can - keep it short, those who lecture can't"
