Does not translate well into an audiobook

What would have made Project Management for Dummies better?

A downloadable guide of some of the lists that they talk about or some downloadable tools. It's not that it is a bad book. It just doesn't translate well into an audiobook. It's basically a 3.5 hour long list of things to do before your next big project. You can imagine how frustrating it is to hear a very long list being read to you while you are trying to drive. Having at least an outline in hardcopy is a must.


What three words best describe Brett Barry’s performance?

Not in line with the PMBOK

The book may be good in general but I could not listen to it because it is not in line with PMI's PMBOK.
