    5.0 out of 5 stars A very good technical PM text book December 7, 2011
    As a project management instructor at a state university and someone who has reviewed countless project management books, I've been teaching from Kerzner books for nearly a decade (different versions). Here's what I think about this book:


    - This book is huge and covers many aspects of project management. Although most project managers will not need everything found in here, it's an excellent resource that, at a minimum, sweeps across nearly every topic at a high level.

    - Kerzner's books are on the more technical side of project management books. It gets pretty deep in some of the numbers sections (e.g. financial, earned value).

    - Generally speaking, this book is well-written and easy to read, even for the project management novice.

    - The exercises at the end of each chapter are excellent. They provide readers with many reinforcement activities.

    - Colorful charts, tables, and illustrations provide additional support for visual learners.


    - Even though it's not meant to teach you how to use tools, there are seldom references to them. Today's project managers are expected to leverage tools such as project management information systems to help them do their jobs.

    - For those who are studying to be certified, this book can only be used as reference support. Do not use this as a sole source to study for any project management certification exam, especially the PMP(R). This is not the purpose of the book and therefore is not adequate.


    - With the expectations that this is a text book and not a training guide, this Kerzner book excels.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Graduate Student September 14, 2009

    Solid book covering the basics of project management. Kernzers is the goal standard for graduate level PM courses. Some integration of PMBoK information, but I do not think it would be good reference for the PMP test.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Monster of a Textbook, Full of Useful Stuff April 23, 2013
    Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    As I noted in my review for A Project Manager's Book of Forms: A Companion to the PMBOK Guide, I got interested in project management when I realized I had been on several project teams at work, only we called them initiatives and they went off the rails because we therefore hadn't given enough attention to things like scope and deliverables. That book of forms is excellent for figuring out what you need to figure out and document a properly executed project. This book, on the other hand, is best for the person who has been given a project in a functional department organization where project management isn't in the DNA. It tells you all the things you need to know to execute projects correctly in an organization that is on board with project management, but, frankly, so do a lot of other books. Where this book shines is its emphasis on getting projects, their management and their use of company resources to mesh with the operations of the broader organization. A regular project management book will tell you that it can sometimes be challenging to get a line manager to sign off on your project using one of his or her employees and that you need to overcome it. This book gets into the nitty gritty of legitimate reasons for the line manager to take that stance and what you need to think about and do to overcome objections. A regular project management will tell you about the importance of managing project scope and the need to rework things with stakeholders before you accept a change in scope. This book goes into detail about the challenges of working with stakeholders from the over-enthusiastic who keep wanting to add things to that person whose only stake is not having your project supplant something he perceives to be on his turf.

    In the past, as I've read about project management, one of my most common reactions was cynicism: the ideas they presented were good, but I doubted than any of the organizations I've worked for would buy in. This textbook gets it and really gets into how to fit projects into the organizational culture, not just how they would be done if the organizational culture was generally supportive of project managers doing what they needed to do to manage projects.

    Because of its size and scope, this is more of a textbook than light reading. I myself have been skimming a chapter here and there rather than wading through page for page. That said, if you are running into challenges implementing projects in your organization, you're better off buying this and slogging through than picking up another three books on how to execute great projects if you haven't gotten any traction with the great ideas from the last three books because the real problem is making things happen within the organizational culture.
