Format: Paperback
The introduction sets out this book to be an aide-memoire or a quick reference manual to practitioners of Prince2: it will also be useful for anyone who needs to talk shop with someone using the Prince2 framework and/or for anyone who wants to get a very high level view of the thought process behind Prince2.

You won't get all of the detail behind the method, which includes some usefull diagrams, due to the book's condensed format but you do get a brief oversight of the following:

The 8 Prince2 Project Management Processes
* Directing a Project
* Starting up a Project
* Initiating a Project
* Controlling a Stage
* Managing Product Delivery
* Managing Stage Boundaries
* Closing a Project
* Planning

The 8 Prince2 Processes:
* Business Case
* Organisation
* Plans
* Controls
* Management of Risk
* Quality in a Project Environment
* Configuration Management
* Change Control

Also, at the end of the book is a decent glossary of Prince2 terms, invaluable if you're working with someone who `speaks a lot of Prince'.

Final Thought - If you are going to do either the foundation or practitioner exams you will need access to a more detailed reference book than this but, once you've done the exams and you've carried around the full-sized text book, you'll certainly appreciate this slim-line version.

Go for this first - see my review of the official manual. This pocket book is easy to read and covers all the ground at a decent but superficial level - will never get you through the examinations but will give you a great understanding of the basics - highly recommended for busy Project Executives to get their heads aronud their position and responsibilities within the Prince2 framework. Highly recommended.

This ought to condense the salient points of the big grey book into a slim reference volume but doesn't. It spends far too long telling us about stuff we don't really need in any detail and completely omits the much-needed set of seven diagrams of the Processes and their constituent sub-processes. I just need something to refer to as an aide-memoire for the stuff that dribbles out of my head because it isn't used every day and isn't glaringly obvious - this isn't it.

Contents:

Intro (PRINCE2, projects, PMs, structure, benefits, etc): pp5-14
Principles: p15 (pretty good single page, to be honest, but a list would suffice)
Themes: pp16-33 (several paragraphs and diagrams for each)
Processes: pp34-37 (single paragraph each, plus the overview process structure diagram)
The Project Environment: p38-39 (tailoring vs. embedding)
Appendix A - PRINCE2's Management Products: pp40-48 (paragraph each, although a simple list would suffice)
Appendix C - Roles & Responsibilities: pp49-52 (paragraph each but you should know all this already)
Further Information: pp53-57 (more OGC stuff you can buy)
Glossary: pp58-81 (actually pretty good, this)

That's right - Appendix B is absent. I wonder what it was? Only Appendix A and the Glossary are really worth anything in this book, and if you want my advice, it would be to photocopy relevant stuff from the big grey book and create your own personal pocketbook.

This is a great companion product for any PRINCE2 qualified person, fits nicely in your pocket, and provides a great ready reference for the definitions etc. In my view should be handed out as part of the course material by providers.

Don't you just hate it when you're at a dinner party and there's a lull in the conversation? Well no more. With this pocket book you can dazzle your fellow diners with priceless Prince2 snippets that will guarantee you don't get invited back next year. It's great for the exam too.

Often described as an aide-memoire for the experienced PRINCE2 Practitioner, this book is equally good as a quick and inexpensive introduction for anyone new to the PRINCE2 methodology. It is small, short and cheap - you can't go wrong with this! My only criticism is that half the book is filled with a complete glossary of PRINCE2 terms: they are helpful but, at this level, I would have preferred a shorter glosssary and a couple more chapters about the methodology

Having just read the first chapter it has already refreshed my memory on the main aspects of PRINCE2. I am a recently qualified Practitioner between projects and this book is going to help me keep on top of the subject. It fits in your back pocket, it's concise and contains the glossary as well.

As well as being invaluable for PRINCE2 people of all levels, I would say it would provide a pretty good introduction for those who are wondering if taking the course and qualifications is for them, and who would not want to spend the money on the larger texts to find out.

This book is so thin it beggars belief, the content is not driven by a vision of being useful more of producing something, in practical terms why should you buy this??
If you have a wobbly table with one leg 6mm short then it is good otherwise its lacks focus or purpose.
Pocket books are for people who know the subject and want a reference to the detail - that is not this book :(
I'm sending it back.
