It's a very decent audiobook. Something good is that it has a bit of the structure of a textbook, and it covers many areas of project management that apply to many situations. This book is perfect if in your career you deal in any way with project management, either by being part of a team, being someone who wants to manage a project, or having any type of project that has fallen on your lap. It will teach you a lot of methods, ideas, processes and especially concepts that will definitely help you in any organization. If you're very familiar with project management, this book may not be what you're looking for.

I was deeply disappointed with this book. From my point of view, this book came across as a college textbook. Project management 101. Lots of narrative about project management principles and how to this and that. Endless checklists. What I was looking for was a book which would give insight into project management for an audience which already had vast experience in project management. I was looking for actual stories/case studies of how projects became successful because of some important insight into people management or an approach. I wanted to hear a PhD. level presentation of how actual projects overcame obstacles and become successful. This book does not do that.

Strong solid information but the monotone voice loses a star.
Worth reviewing if you are strong in basic project management skills but have problems getting people to deliver or just to come on board.

An excellent book for any PM. It gives you a lot of info and guidance that isn't part of the PMBOK or Prince 2 Methodology.
Essential reading for any PM. I have now purchased a hard copy as well for easy reference at work.
This book can be a little hard going as it includes very dense subject matter with a lot of content. There is limited narrative structure which makes extended listing challenging.
