Review:

This book was extremely painful to attempt reading.  I struggled through a bit, fell asleep, skipped to the next chapter and repeated the cycle a few times.  The few things that I did absorb, I felt were very obvious to anyone who has worked within project management for even a short period of time.  There are better resources available and I would not recommend this one unless you are specifically required to follow the methodology.

Warning: Extremely tedious.

Rating: 1 star!

Who should read it? People required to follow The Project Success Methodologies.
