Kindle version 17 Mar 2008
By Robin W. Gates - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a long time MS Project user and have owned several Project books. I have read about 1/3 of this book and feel that it is excellent. It works in very helpful advice about project management principles so it is much more than a manual on how to use the software. This is the Kindle version which I generally love. It is great to have this 1,000 page manual available at my finger tips. The only reason I gave it four stars rather than five is that the illustrations don't show up very well in the Kindle. They really need to be enlarged to see them and I haven't found a way to do that with the Kindle. That is my only complaint.
Great book - Font too small 5 Nov 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This a great book. It has no cd but perhaps a magnifying glass should be included. Whats up editors? Tried reading 1000pages with small font? This could be the first book that could get a user liability suit for damaging eyes! (a joke, but true).
