Brilliant Project Management was recommended to me by a colleague in the UK but it wasn't easy to find around here. It's worth taking the trouble to track down a copy - it's easily the best book on project management that I've come across.

I've checked out loads of books recently and this one is different to the others.It's mainly about giving good practical advice based on experience and I caught myself saying: "yeah, good idea, I could easily do that" several times. I was able to start using their guidance immediately.

Most of it is based on commonsense and good practice. It also contains good supporting aids too, like checklists and prompts - they really help to put the ideas into action.

It also makes a change to see chapters dedicated to the people side of project management.In my opinion, too many so-called experts forget that building effective teams and motivating people are a key part of project management.

This book appeals to a wide audience too. It was perfect for someone with a reasonable level of experience like me, but you'd get a lot out of it even if you're new to the subject.

It's written by two English guys and it has plenty of their wry, hilarious humor. They feature a stack of their own excellent anecdotes dotted throughout the book and even the cartoons work well, so I get the feeling there was plenty of attention to detail.

Brilliant Project Management is easy to read and easy to dip into. And I can't remember laughing at a business book before. My only complaint is that it's so darned hard to find. Why? My colleague in the UK told me that over there this is currently the bestselling book on project management, so only the publishers know, I guess.
