3.0 out of 5 stars Necessary reading for the PMP certification, January 16, 2006
This book is a description of the Project Management Institute's standards. It is an interesting albeit long read with a lot of information packed into its roughly 400 pages. I had to read it 3 times in order to better understand the PMI's methodology.

If you have some project management experience, and want to take the PMP certification test, you will have to read this book. However, I would recommend that you supplement your reading with books focused on preparation for the PMP exams/tests.

If you are new to project management, and want to take the PMP certification test, I recommend that before reading this book, you read a beginner's guide such as the Complete Idiot's Guide to Project Management by Sunny Baker.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Practical Introduction to Project Management, January 13, 2006
A practical, direct introduction to project management in plain English -- that's how I would sum up this book.

The Bakers use PMI terminology (the project initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing processes), and provide good guidance throughout the book to beginners.

Each chapter is well structured with a clear introduction, middle and summary. There are practical common sense tips throughout the book, examples are easy to follow and there are useful bullet points that you can use as checklists for your projects.

If you are a seasoned projet manager, this book is not for you. However, it can be of great use if you are planning to create a project management training session for your company/clients.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to Project Management, January 13, 2006
This is a good book for beginners. If you are a seasoned Project Manager, you probably won't find this book of much interest.

Stanely Porter's book succeeds in explaining to the reader the phases of a project in a logical sequence -- all of this is done using a simple and clear language style.

The book is also peppered with a lot of useful tips how how to deal with project-related matters such as micro-management, project turnaround, how to hold people accountable, how to become a better project manager, and on.

In my opinion, the only weakness in this book are certain examples, which are far too long (especially in Chapters 3 & 4). Also, I personally like books which have a summary at the end of each chapter (which is not the case for this book). This is the reason why I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
