great book. helps with all kinds of management.

considering the book gives the impression it's purely beneficial to those looking to define their slot of manage as 'project management', the book is filled with lots of helpful information. as a mechanical engineer I find this content useful is a multiple of ways. recommended for anyone who is not a project management wanting to advance their scope into management techniques.
