To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I enjoyed reading this book as a refresher on some key project management principles. It's not too long or too cumbersome like some tomes I have read in the past and is a handy 'bookshelf book' to pull out when needed. The language is relatively informal which is a good thing in my opinion. I found the 'Project Manager as Leader' a good chapter as motivation, managing conflict and virtual teams are all key areas to focus on to be successful. Whilst a good, solid book it isn't exceptional and so giving it 4 rather than 5 *'s.
This was a good intro to the basics, content wise. However, the book itself includes pages 1-228 and then after page 228 prints pages 50-228 yet again. I was very confused to initially see an index in the middle of the book! Slightly annoying as the book is much bigger than anticipated. Something has either gone very wrong with the print PDF supplied to the printer or this is a print on demand mishap. As the book is clearly bigger than intended it also means the spine is now out of line and some of the front cover artwork appears round the bend of the spine. Also, slightly annoying to hold a much bigger book. Definitely needs to be looked into by the publisher/printer.
