Bare Bones Project Management,
(IS Survivor Publishing, 2006)
The subtitle says it all: "The book for everyone who has been volunteered to lead a project despite having no training
or experience in the discipline." Bob Lewis is the only I.T. expert I know who can teach a subject concisely, clearly,
and with humor -- so you walk away feeling you just spent time on the mountaintop getting tutored by a guru. Anyone starting
out in project management needs this book -- not just I.T. folks. Price should be no object, because it's so inexpensive
that you'll have a hard time explaining to your boss why you haven't read it. Don't blow your first -- or next --
project. Get it, read it! Order this book.

bystander. Order this book.
