More About the Author

Kieron was born in Dover, England to a British Army officer of the Royal Artillery.
Along with his two elder brothers, he was dragged off to Germany at the age of two, hoisted over to Hong Kong for a few years, taken back to England for a spell, shipped to Germany again and by the time he was eight had crossed the Channel a dozen times while attending a catholic boarding school in Ipswich, UK. A score of moves later, and after a posting to Singapore, at the age of thirteen he ended up in Zambia.
That's when the adventures began. After staggering through a chequered career in tea, tobacco, dairy, pig and chicken farming, he made for Cape Town. There, in pursuit of his lost love, he stowed away in the confessional box of a first-class London-bound P&O cruiser's chapel. Three weeks later, he was escorted (handcuffed) off the boat to lick his wounds at Her Majesty's pleasure. But he got out, tracked the girl down and married her. After then spending a period back in Central and Eastern Africa as lord of a tea plantation, a raging war of terror in Zambia had him high-tailing it back to England (with a son and a pair of daughters), there to fall from grace and become a Cowman, where dung was the operative word.
Some years later (after almost being murdered by rampaging burglars in his back garden), like a bat out of hell he fled Africa and landed in Perth,Western Australia.
Somehow, he ended up an award winning software designer and now divides his time between Australia and Rome, Italy where he writes his thrillers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I find this the best SAP PS book currently available. It covers all of the logistic flows giving easy to use information for enduser as well as sap professional.
The scenario part gives interresting views on implementing SAP PS for those that have been in the job for years and can help newbies to find their way through workshops and customer presentations.
The greatest asset of this book is the flawless integration of written explanation and technical customization information (including custo transactions), making it an easy to understand, complete and must-have asset to all of us playing around in the project system.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By George on 29 April 2008
Format: Paperback
I found this excellent book incredibly easy to follow. It cuts out all the jargon so common to technical books, but provides all the essentials. It even covers much of the IM (Investment Management) module and how it integrates with PS.
I particularly liked the approach - it starts off with a scenario which explains how each of the main points of PS function in a real situation, then it points out what each elements of PS is capable of. Throughout, you get direction on which transactions to use, and when. Configuration is explained field-by-field with plenty of screen-shots. One of the parts I really liked was the Project Builder screens, which direct you to where each field is configured. Some great tips are also included and on the grapevine, I hear the author is preparing a companion web-site full of tips, tricks and business scenarios. Highly recommended.

The book is useful if you want a short overlook over the PS Module capabilities and integration possibilities.

Without a System connection, Customizing views could help, but unfortunately the pages do not recall the main activities.

Format: Paperback
Very general, does not go into much detail (even though the back cover says 'in-depth info / comprehensive)- not helpful if you want to learn how to use the PS system on a day-to-day basis (for example book tells you that you can set up a template for projects but then doesn't show you how !).
Only good as a general reference book.

Excellent Source for leaning how to configure Project System 29 Nov. 2008
By RITMISProf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read this book cover-to-cover. I recommend it to anyone who is seriously interested in learning how to configure and use the Project System (PS) component of SAP R/3. It is a concise, easy-to-read, and extremely instructive guide to using PS and I believe it should be a MUST-HAVE for anyone who works with the Project System. It employs an approach that I wish were modeled in other books about R/3 configuration.

While reading this book and with a smll bit of prior knowledge about PS, I was able to configure a project from scratch, including related configuration work in the IMG. It is the best source for an R/3 product that I have encountered and having taught SAP R/3 Configuration for 8 years and taken over 63 days of SAP Americas' R/3 training, I think this says a lot.

I wish there were books like this about such topics as variant configuration, SCM, SNC, and APO: it would have made it a lot easier for me to have learned about configuring these products.

Caveat: I do not know how this book would be for someone who has never worked with R/3 but I also do not think anyone interested in the Project System would be in that situation.

Very Dissapointed from a user perspective 15 Mar. 2010
By Keith M. Clegg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a user of PS i was very dissapointed in this book and I would not recommend it to anyone with limited knowledge or wanting to learn how to use PS from a user perspective.

The project builder which I believe is one of the main components of PS only receives a cursory look in the book.The building of a WBS structure showing hierarchies etc had no suitable examples and was only briefly touched on.

Nice Book 8 Oct. 2011
By andres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a nice handbook for somebody who wants fast answers to common questions. The best part is how the scenarios are covered, that let you understand more about PS. Also the configuration part is very interesting. This is not a handbook of how to use the basic of PS, this is about how to do advance configurations and how PS relate whit the other modules.

Easy to understand the topics 14 April 2011
By Shankar Ganesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is well written and easy to understand, though the book does not cover all topics of SAP Project System.
Further, it is written from PS user point of view and can be kept as a easy reference.
A very good introduction to SAP PS configuration! 6 Sept. 2014
By Frans Blommaert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very good book on SAP PS. Easy to read. Very systematically.
This book rougly follows the SAP Reference IMG.
Very helpful are the tools in chapter 6 with the screenviews of the project builder and
the technical information in chapter 7 with tables , transaction codes and the overview of the logical
database . A very good introduction to SAP PS configuration.
