There is no such thing as cheating in project management, but if there were it would be this book. It includes quick steps, relevant tips, fun stories and applicable advice to solving common problems and questions focused around the work of a project manager. The book is in question/answer format with 11 chapters covering 65 questions (including "How can I convince those who are change resistant?" and "How can I tell if a project is getting off track before it's too late?"). When you have a question or problem, do you have time to stop what you're doing and read a 300-page book on a single topic? Wouldn't it be great if you could open a book and find a one- to two-page answer that you can apply immediately, in the moment when you need it? Now you've found one.
