If you are heading or starting any project this is a must read before you get going. Everything has a degree of risk involved but this helps you identify and minimize. Learn from the past!
Even the "big boys" make mistakes, which the smaller company can learn from. The scale of the problem may be different but the principle is the same. I bought this as I needed to do some research for the company I work for, and it has certainly surpassed my expectations and given me a huge amount of insight and knowledge into this particular area.
It is full of relevant information in the 16 chapters, for example the failure rate, main elements of project failure, reasons for project failure - followed by a few chapters of specific real case studies in failed projects, how they failed and the reasons why. Chapter 16 is titled "How to prevent project failure", and is followed by a Bibliography at the very end.
This is a very impressive and professionally presented book. The quality is excellent and I highly recommend this for anyone who requires information on this subject!

Overall, I definitely recommend this book.
This was a fascinating read, that didn't skimp on the details! It laid out quite a few projects implemented by multi-million and -billion dollar companies, and how and why they failed. It lays out the different ways that projects can fail (budget being one, and the most prevalent), and how these risks could have been mitigated.
It was a fascinating look, full of charts and graphics to both explain the ideas plainly, and keep you interested. And I am pleased to say, this definitely did both for me. Recommended!
