Product Description

Review

...As in the previous editions, the writing is always simple, clear and lucid, and the material is very logically organised. Students often comment that this book is the most readable of all the recommended books in my reading lists, and this is often the one which they choose to buy. I particularly dislike management jargon and this book is refreshingly free of it. It is a very practical book which appeals to the whole range of students I teach and I thoroughly recommend it. ' Dr Sally Brailsford, University of Southampton, UK'This extensive and exhaustive book deals with almost every aspect of Project Management in its widest sense, including construction and civil engineering projects....The author is obviously very experienced in the field, and in teaching the field. This is aided considerably by the liberal inclusion of useful and informative illustrative case studies. Again, the writing style of the author is to be commended in that these are easily digested and very helpful in adding context to the concepts discussed in the relevant sections.' Building Engineer,3'I have been a fan of Dennis Lock's clarity of thought and objectivity for many years and thoroughly recommend this latest edition as the definitive, readable and practical guide to hands on project management.' Marine Engineers Review'The simplicity of the book makes it an ideal text for exploring some of the more complex facets of project management. The book is well established and has been successfully used in educational settings and by engineers looking to update their skills. A particular strength is the emphasis on cost and identification, which pervade most areas. The book does an admirable job in explaining complicated ideas in a simple way, which is what has made this title an institution for the last eight editions and 36 years.'Dr. Darren Dalcher, Professor of Software Project Management and Head of Software Forensics Centre at Middlesex University and Visiting Professor of Computer Science at the University of Iceland
