As a project management instructor at a state university and someone who has reviewed countless project management books, I've been teaching from Kerzner books for nearly a decade (different versions). Here's what I think about this book:

PROS

- This book is huge and covers many aspects of project management. Although most project managers will not need everything found in here, it's an excellent resource that, at a minimum, sweeps across nearly every topic at a high level.

- Kerzner's books are on the more technical side of project management books. It gets pretty deep in some of the numbers sections (e.g. financial, earned value).

- Generally speaking, this book is well-written and easy to read, even for the project management novice.

- The exercises at the end of each chapter are excellent. They provide readers with many reinforcement activities.

- Colorful charts, tables, and illustrations provide additional support for visual learners.

CONS

- Even though it's not meant to teach you how to use tools, there are seldom references to them. Today's project managers are expected to leverage tools such as project management information systems to help them do their jobs.

- For those who are studying to be certified, this book can only be used as reference support. Do not use this as a sole source to study for any project management certification exam, especially the PMP(R). This is not the purpose of the book and therefore is not adequate.

OVERALL

- With the expectations that this is a text book and not a training guide, this Kerzner book excels.

Solid book covering the basics of project management. Kernzers is the goal standard for graduate level PM courses. Some integration of PMBoK information, but I do not think it would be good reference for the PMP test.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As I noted in my review for A Project Manager's Book of Forms: A Companion to the PMBOK Guide, I got interested in project management when I realized I had been on several project teams at work, only we called them initiatives and they went off the rails because we therefore hadn't given enough attention to things like scope and deliverables. That book of forms is excellent for figuring out what you need to figure out and document a properly executed project. This book, on the other hand, is best for the person who has been given a project in a functional department organization where project management isn't in the DNA. It tells you all the things you need to know to execute projects correctly in an organization that is on board with project management, but, frankly, so do a lot of other books. Where this book shines is its emphasis on getting projects, their management and their use of company resources to mesh with the operations of the broader organization. A regular project management book will tell you that it can sometimes be challenging to get a line manager to sign off on your project using one of his or her employees and that you need to overcome it. This book gets into the nitty gritty of legitimate reasons for the line manager to take that stance and what you need to think about and do to overcome objections. A regular project management will tell you about the importance of managing project scope and the need to rework things with stakeholders before you accept a change in scope.Read more ›

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Project Management, apparently now in its 124th edition, is a well-organized, readable, rigorous, and, in spots, a surprisingly personal book. The structuring of the information in this book is artful and impressive. It gives you both both big picture perspectives and many helpful little nuggets of information. One of the great strengths of this book are the many case studies from all sorts of different projects.

This book really keeps its eye on the ball when it comes to ROI and the extended "case study" on the Iridium Project provides lots of specific examples regarding maximizing ROI.

There's one refreshing and welcome aspect of this book -- it recognizes the importance of the personal when it comes to effective project management. Some players are enthusiastic, some players are skeptical, some players like big ideas, others are bean-counters who can't see past the way they've always done things. This book somehow manages to effectively intertwine these personal dynamics with the more technical aspects of project implementation. And this is no mean feat.

Format: Hardcover
While this book has a lot of good information, it is poorly written. The author tends to ramble without very clear organization. Additionally, most topics or concepts are incessantly repeated. The 1000+ pages of this book could easily be condensed to under 200 if the redundancies and unnecessary text were removed.
