and to the point, just like Eric's book
Stout (Seattle, WA USA)
I teach Project Management to
Fortune 100 companies and I'm a principal in an internet
based project management enterprise, 'ProjectOasis.com'.
I tell my students: 'If you
want 1 book that covers it all in a way you can quickly
access and put to practical use then get Eric's book. The
material in the book is well proven and can be applied in
all industries and on all projects.'
I've seen this book stolen
from conference rooms! I recommend you buy your copy... from
Amazon of course.
Professionals & Students Should Have a Personal Copy
Barrow and Ian Walcott (Barbados, Caribbean)
Verzuh's book is at the top of
its class. We just recently concluded a Project Management
Seminar here in Barbados and this was the text used
throughout the seminar. In addition, it's one of the
standard texts on our Project Management Professional
What most heady and highly
theoretical writers on project management tend to do in over
500 pages, Verzuh achieved in 300 pages. He was able to
demystify Project Management and present it in such a way
that everyone out there with an interest in the subject area
could follow. It would therefore be totally incongruous to
review this book in academic jargon. By the same token, it
perfectly compliments some of the more abstract academic
texts that are out there.
We particularly found the
chapter on the Work Breakdown Structure to be very useful
since most amateurs will probably just buy a software
package and command it intuitively without fully
understanding the logic and problem solving behind the it.
Verzuh's text will definitely help you to better understand
the logic behind the software.
The text is highly recommended
and our students love it.
