Good Book, in a Great Series. Perfect Performance.

The "What You Need to Know About:" Series is what "For Dummies" "Idiot's Guide" books should have been. All the introductory guidance to get you started, but none of the embarrassment, or insult.

This one on Project Management is a near perfect primer on the otherwise terribly complicated world of Project Management (try Googling it, you'll never know where to start). It is also a well rounded introduction to best practices. The references to additional resources are excellent, and are mentioned throughout where applicable.

Anyone who wants to become a project manager professionally, should start here, even if only to get cleared up on the jargon, and vernacular first. Anyone looking to actually get things done more effectively, by managing their own projects with less confusion in their lives, may need go no further than this book.

Colin Mace's delivery is superb. I could listen to his reading all day.
