Project Management in Context,
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.
