I think the book is excellent, but then I should as I wrote it! Seriously, I was asked to compare it to all the other similar project management guides, including Project Management for Dummies & I reckon this is better value for money and a lot easier to read. That is largely down to the format and quality of printing provided by In Easy Steps.

As to the quality of my content I will be interested in seeing what others think. Colleagues and friends who have read it so far have been very complimentary but it would be interesting to see what others think. If you buy it I hope you enjoy it... and be lucky with your projects (page 185).

Now superseded by Effective Project Management in easy steps and supplemented by Agile Project Management in easy steps.

I don't know that this is the right book for me. I mean, will it really help me to be a better project manager ?

I did hope to get a free copy of the book because John Carroll, the author, is a cousin of mine. In the end I had to buy it myself ! This had a significant impact on my cash flow.

There are other project management books on the market. I could mention one by Marion E.Haynes that I found helpful.

I've just thought. The book might help me to be a better member of a project team as well. That would be a result !

Excellent fundamentals of PM text 22 Dec. 2010
By Steve W. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We teach project management and our company is R.E.P. certified. I myself am PMP certified as well. I'm always on the lookout for good textbooks on the subject to share with our students.

What makes this book so unique is that it is entirely in COLOR. I once had a publisher tell me "Business books are not printed in color", which I found ridiculous - I couldn't easily convey the red-yellow-green risk assessment colors used, etc. as easily or meaningful in B&W. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this text.

The only reason I took off one star is the methodology shown therein for creating a WBS presented on pages 62-63. The author presents how to create a WBS by breaking down the project into stages, and no other alternative method of WBS creation is discussed. Adding some better alternatives would make this a 5 star text.

CPM Approved! 3 Sept. 2012
By Ronald D. Bruner Jr. - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a CPM and during my time studying and going through classes, I relied heavily on this book as much so as my required text. This book covers most things an average CPM will encounter in day to day activities and is set up and organized very well. PM can be a boring, tedious subject as you probably already know, and this book honestly helped me make it through!
