5.0 out of 5 stars Project Management in Context, 5 Feb 2004
By 
Richard Scott (CND in UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Project Management, 3rd Ed. (Paperback)
The main shortcoming of most project management books is that they adopt a single methodology and fail to give the reader a context in which to apply the knowledge. They fail to answer "Why?"
Maylor's book tells you why.
It provides the reader with knowledge in context so that he/or she can make an informed judgment and more relevant decisions about how to proceed with a given project issue. If every project wasn't different Maylor's book wouldn't be so important. But projects are different, and this book is important.
For anyone wanting to really understand the real-life issues of project management this is a must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Text book for beginners, 17 Mar 2009
By 
Mr. Robert J. Davidson (Derby, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is a very good book as an introduction to projects, planning them and going onto teams for the first time. It is a recommended text book for the MBA program. The book makes virtually no mention of MS Project and the disc was actually for 2007 not 2005 as advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive guide to Project Management, 20 Sep 2004
This review is from: Project Management, 3rd Ed. (Paperback)
This book is an excellent companion to the challenging and rewarding community of project managers. The information is logically sequenced and the page layout is highly accessible. Each chapter gives a thorough overview and contains detailed references to enable further research. Harvey Maylor has successfully balanced the academic and commercial perspectives to create an interesting and inspiring study guide. I have invested many evenings learning this material and have significantly advanced my professional development. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 11 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Project Management, 3rd Ed. (Paperback)
For those who are in this area this is a very good book. A bit advanced and contains a lot of math theory but I really enjoyed it (a bit boring and repetitive from time to time, but good tool).
Cheers.
