If this is a required text for your class then this is a moot review. If you have a choice in the matter, this is a text that has dated (most are older than 2000) small (2-4 pages)in medium text book format to medium(5-10 page) unanswered cases studies for use in an academic environment to discuss 1-2 points per case study. there are several indepth large case studies that hopefuly will cover the bulk of what your assignment requires.

As the preface by the author states, many instructors require the content of papers used in the course to be more current limiting the usefulness of the text regardless of the relavance. Unfortunately two of my instructors in the MPMP program required with in 5 years releveance and as the case studies are dated in most instances I was half way through the book to find any that would meet the time requirement. In a first come first pick scholastic environment...ouch.

The text does break down the case studies into a logicall grouping order by Project Management sub categories such as scheduling, risk ,resources etc. this has some use as a student looking for a case study by those categories

In the intent of the author the book does what it is designed to do but for someone who is an acknowleded expert in Project Management field and has numerous other books referenced heavily it would be wonderful if it were brought more up to date.

Depends on what you want it for. I wanted to use it in a classroom with my students. Unfortunately, these have a copyright that prevent this. While I am happy some people can use this, I really wish that the publishers and author had allowed this for educational use.

Large Book with many case studies however, if you are wanting to learn how issues were resolved you have to order another book from publisher. I went to the other site and found that you had to be a professor at a university to order this other book. This was not as helpful as I was hoping. I was trying to increase my knowledge on problem resolution. Not what I was expecting.

Some of the case studies in this book are very long and extremely detailed (in a good way!), but some are short-and-sweet. Kerzner gets to the point quickly and really makes you think. I used this book in a Project Management master's program and referred to it in several classes. Make sure you check your syllabus and get the correct edition, though. Some of us bought our books before a syllabus change and had to scramble to find page numbers that corresponded with the new edition.

Some of the case studies were great, like an investigative magazine article, and some were impenetrable and laden with jargon, like the worst academic writing. Also, some of the "made up" case studies were fun, and the questions useful for thinking about.

This was a book I bought because it was required for a course for college. It really helped with my studies.
