  • This book is definitely worth reading. It is not a superficial "funny" project management summary like many out there. Though it is funny and enjoyable to read, it does have "depth". It covers many thorny subjects with good tips such as managing sponsors, and making slackers work. The most brilliant of all is, it covers many many many such subjects and really has massive practical value. It is very much complementary to the PMBook. Be warned, it is not very short, not one of those gulp-in-one-go-pill books. On the other hand, you can add it to your before bed time reading without worrying that you will fall a sleep on it.
    It feels like a conversation with the writers on their experiences as PMs, and a big thank you! to them for sharing these with us indeed.

  • This book is great fun to read and has, in addition to a good sense of humor, concepts that made me smile and say, "That's right!" I've passed it on to my co-workers and they also enjoyed reading it. It is a solid supplement to the study of Project Management. I especially liked the sections on dealing with and reading people through body language.

  • A great book for understanding and developing teams. Fun to read.

  • I purchased this book based on some of the older "rave" reviews, and was somewhat disappointed. There are some good, basic ideas on meeting management, leadership, etc., but some of them are rather trite (Myers-Briggs typing, etc.) I think this book would be a good starting point to someone in middle management on a project, but if you're beyond this point you may not find anything new.

  • Great quality, like new, good condition, AS PROMISED!
    Shipped fast.
    Thank you

  • Book has suffered from multiple reading, but ok for me
    I will read it with interest in the coming days

  • I feel it is important to define what this book is not. This book does not discuss estimation models or costing models, it does not have tips on how to develop a project plan using MS-Project & in general, there are no technicalities discussed.

    Rather, this book has tips on everything else that could contribute to the success or failure of a project. The topics include planning, team building, conduct, meetings, & use of technology to better manage projects.

    The sections on planning, conduct & meetings are good & full of specific examples for real life project management issues. In fact, this specific nailing down of issues is one of the threads that run through the book - but the impact is limited to these sections. There are many templates & approaches that are discussed & most of the templates can be downloaded from the book's website. People new to project management will find these sections particularly useful as they're unlikely to encounter all these situations & learn by themselves in their early years.

    The section on team building has a bit of theory & a lot of explanation on the Myers-Briggs test & the interpretation of its results. I'm not sure if conducting an M-B test as part of building a team is very feasible or is otherwise recognized as a best practice.

    The section on technology talks about project intranets & extranets, organizing files & directories, & there are some useful tips on software selection. To be fair, leveraging technology to manage projects, I think, is a topic beyond the scope of a chapter in a 200-page book. However, there isn't much new in this section.

    In general, this book is worth a read for somebody with less than two years of project management experience. For anybody who has managed projects for more than that, the value of this book will start diminishing given the extent of her experience.

    Finally, this book is written in a very chatty way. Moreover, it's funny.

    S!

  • I had heard the phrase "herding cats" used to describe project management and was intrigued to see this variaion on the theme. This book was clearly head and shoulders above the crowd when compared to all of the other Project Management books I have read over the past few years. Everyone else just regurgitates platitudes and lists of "ought to do" tasks. This book was etertaining, informative, thought provoking, energizing and affordable. I could easily relate to the examples and shaped new perspectives as a result. I read the cover to cover riding the train to and from work. The real payback was realized when I set the book aside for a week or so and then set out to re-read it (making copious notes in the margins). I got even more ideas out of the book and implemented many practical ideas without needing board of directors approval. I have recommended it to nearly everyone who will listen to me talk about it ... but I will not part with my own copy, encouraging them to purchase their own copy. By the time I reached the end of the book, I was feeling more confidence in my skills as a Free Range Chicken Herder. SQUAWK!
