A very useful book. Got dumped with having to organise a project at work, with little training in actual project management. It's largely common sense, but this book really did help me to plan it all out logically. The advice about getting an agreed objective, timeline etc was invaluable.I managed to read it in a weekend, and I am sure this has saved me a lot of problems further down the line. It really is enough to get the job done and it's also made me interested in learning more.
I wanted a credible and brief overview of PM. I read this book in a day during my commute. It's an overview with enough detail which is the structure I was looking for. The rest I'll figure out in the doing.
