Just Basics

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Good if you just want the basics of project management. Absolute waste of time if you are planing on taking the PMP certification test.

Was Project Management for Dummies worth the listening time?

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.
