Neal Whitten's No-Nonsense Advice For Successful Projects
Average Reviews:

(More customer reviews)
Neal Whitten discusses project management best practices in an easy-to-digest format. He bypasses theory and verbose explanations and delivers advice in 5-8 page sections. The first part of each section provides the meat, accompanied by sidebars summing up the page's contents, and then followed questions and answers related to the topic.

I have been reading Whitten in "PM Network" and hearing him at local PMI chapter presentations and this book is a compilation of that material plus additional. The content is perfect for a seasoned project manager who has actual experience to reflect on as they consider Whitten's advice.

A strength of this book is also a weakness, thus only four stars above. While the book is easy to read and maintains a sharp focus, there is also a lot of white space, with large margins, and the constant summarizing and re-summarizing with sidebars and related Q&A does lead to some skimming.

This is one of the few project management books I have ever read that would make a good audio book. With concise advice like "Are you too soft?", "Inspect what you expect", "Manage to your top three problems", and "Escalate is not a dirty word", his message is very effectively delivered, understood, and remembered.
