If you're a project manager, or just a manager who has projects to run, this is the book for you.
Full-time project managers will find reminders about good practice, and 'part-timers' will find straightforward frameworks and guidelines that will help you to ensure that your projects are completed on time, to budget and meeting quality standards.
Written in simple language, keep this book handy to dip into now and again to remind yourself what you should be doing to keep your project on track.

I would recommend Richard Newton's book Brilliant Checklists for Project Managers to all project managers or anyone who has been asked to manage projects in addition to their daily role. I first read this book some four years ago and although I have been a PM for over ten years, I still dip in now and again for a refresher. This book is not offering a structured approach to project management, like for example Prince2, and does not claim to be. What it does brilliantly though is provide the fundamental steps and tools for managing a successful project. If you are managing a project you would be wise to use RIchard's checklist.
