Informative and interesting

This book is an absolute godsend if, like me, you've found yourself landed with a project management role and nobody can tell you what exactly that entails.

From start to finish, this book details the precise steps to take to ensure your project success. Using simple examples of successes and failures and the many things that can go wrong, as well as providing plenty of recommended reading and useful websites for anyone looking to do further research, the author provides the skills and processes which help keep projects on track - and keep the project-manager from having a breakdown.

The narrative is clear and concise and the audio-narrator is articulate and clearly comfortable with the subject matter.

This is a book I would recommend to friends and colleagues without hesitation and I will revisit it on many occasions.

A must buy!

Systematic and organised

Very useful tool.
This is the first book I've bought on Project Management, and it is in my opinion that it should be everyones.
It lays the foundations for you to arrange any other more 'industry specific' project management books atop. Its not claiming to give the ins and outs of all industries, but it does give you a more than 'common sense' approach which is transferrable.
Without the structure and directions in this book you may well end up chasing your tail as a project manager!
I am busy drumming this into myself at present, as I want it to be the basis of how I orgsanise my thinking prior to undertaking any major tasks.
Hats off to Fergus O'Connell
