REVIEW
 Although this book is not the solution, it can help quite a bit to give direction to the newly assigned manager.  The ideas are very straightforward of which  maybe not totally understood, can be learned.  To totally understand the ideas, they must be applied.  There is never a simple no substitute for experience.  This book is only a starter, a primer, it covers the basics, purpose and goals to the final details.  This book can help a lot to reduce the anxiety of facing a promotion.

 The book is like a jump start and has some very good starting ideas.  By no means is this book a total solution. As said before.  There is no substitute for experience.  Use the book as an aide for ideas to apply for that new promotion that may be coming up.

 I received a complimentary copy of PROJECT MANAGEMENT from the author Kalpesh Asher for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
