The Project Manager’s Quick Start Guide is an excellent book for new and evolving Project Managers. It reviews how projects are supposed to be run, as well as what you can expect coming in the door to your first project or even your first one at a new organization. Every project is different and this is the first book that I’ve seen that focuses on the need to know information from first-hand experience and not just theories and best practices. I wish I’d read this book before my first ‘real project’ and will keep it close by as a refresher.
