I bought this book to better understand Project Management as I am trying to switch to that position in the future from Software Engineering. I love it. Very insightful, detailed and easy to follow. It makes Project Management understanding easier incase you want to get certified in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but expensive 21 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am not normally fond of books that I have to buy as part of a course as they tend to be read once affairs but this is actually a very useful textbook so partly justifies its high price.
It's the sort of project management book I will come back to and still find useful information in.
