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.

Overall good

Good overall review and beginner view of project management. Not a good book to read for prep for the PMP exam. Uses real world examples to show how project management is done. Worth a read but not for study prep.

Useful by sticking to the reality of the situation

Out of all the books I've read about Project Management this one seemed to stick to what has proven to work in the world without getting tied up in the symantics of process and compliance. Keep it simple s... that's what I was looking for.

Good way to start learning basics

for someone who has worked on projects in the past but hasnt had any formal training, its a good way to understand the principles.

cut through the chase

It is factual and to the point with ample references to further investigates if required - the way subject matter must be presented - to the point

better and hard copy

overall I think the book is good. However my biggest issue is I think this would be much better in a hard copy. constantly references links and tables .

simplistic, not the least bit informative

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The author is way too simplistic in his explanations. He offers little if any examples. In my opinion, a terrible book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing from this author.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Colin Mace?

Not a viable question.

What character would you cut from What You Need to Know About: Project Management?

The entire premise of their assumptions.

Super Buch, strukturierter Inhalt, klasse Lesung

Würden Sie What You Need to Know About: Project Management noch mal anhören? Warum?

Ich habe viel gehört und gelesen über PM.
Dieser Autor UND dieser Leser schaffen es das Thema PM mal aus einer etwas anderen Sicht zu beleuchten. Öfter kommt die "was wäre wenn" Sicht mit rein.
Sehr unterhaltsam, sehr aufschlussreich, sehr informativ.

Welcher Moment von What You Need to Know About: Project Management ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

"Never take an impossible mission"
and
"the has to be contingency in the plan"

Hat Ihnen Colin Mace an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

der Sprecher liest wie ein Author. Er ermahnt und gibt väterliche Ratschläge. Die Lesung ist sehr angenehm.

Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

kurz geschichtliche Rückblicke auf PM der Steinzeit und des Altertums sowie des 19. Jhd zeigen die große Relevanz des Themas.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Das Buch ist für jeden was, für den Super PM, der seit 20 Jahren Projekte reisst und für den blutigen Anfänger.

Der Sprecher ist absolut ungeeigntet.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Sprecher macht lange Pausen und spricht dann extrem schnell und verschluckt ganze Sätze nur um dann wieder um eine endlose Pause zu machen. Das ist extrem anstengend anzuhören. Ich kann diesen Mann nicht anhören. Der Stoff leidet total darunter.
