Here’s another book review. And let me tell you, Being a Project Manager is a unique book, in a good way.
It’s been a while since I wrote a review or even read a Project (Management) related book. Just in case you are new to TPC, it’s a hobby of mine to review books on Project (management). The last book that I reviewed was the GAO schedule assessment guide. This time I’m going to review a book not related to the tool, but what it is to be a Project Manager.

Hello my lovely readers,
Today I want to share some blogging lessons with you, it’s unrelated to Microsoft Project or PPM. So if you are looking for info on that you might want to head back to the homepage and find another post (like Never delete a task for instance).
This post is about my experience with Affiliate links. And I wanted to share the info with you because there have been some changes to TPC based on the knowledge I have now. Continue reading Affiliate links, lessons learned
Ah yes, I couldn’t resist to do another book review. And best of all, you can get a free copy of this book yourself, more on that later.
This is a review for The GAO Schedule Assessment Guide. The subtitle might say it all: Best Practices for Project Schedules. Awesome, let’s take a look:

Sorry for the radio silence the last few weeks. I’d like to post regularly but I’ve had a full agenda the last 2 months that didn’t permit me to write as frequently as I’d like. In this post I’d like to share one of the big changes that has happened. And also a heads up what’s coming and finally the winner of the book contest! But first: Continue reading A new challenge
Welcome (back) reader, this post is an extensive book review, documenting my views and opinions on the book: The Ultimate Application Administrator’s Guide for Project Online. We have encountered the authors of the book more than once before. The guys at Sensei Project Solutions wrote multiple, high value, beautifully designed books related to the products MS Project, Project Server and Project Online.
Let’s begin. Continue reading Book review: The Ultimate Application Administrator’s Guide for Project Online
I’ve spent the last few weeks reading the Fast Forward MBA in Project Management, a great book by Eric Verzuh who is, besides a bestselling author, the president of The Versatile Company, a firm that delivers training on project management topics to thousands of professionals every year.
This is the first best seller on the topic of Project Management I have read, and I do need to say that it is a best seller for a reason.
Reading a book about project management is a welcome sidestep from reading about the Microsoft Project and Project Online tools. This book describes processes, and methodology more than what button you should push next. I hope you’ll like the review on: The Fast Forward MBA in Project Management.
Here is another Book review. This time the book revolves around a special focus point: The Team Members. Written by Kenneth Steiness, who we know from the other book review I did and his activity at the Project Virtual Conference.

It’s been a while since I posted a book review. The last one was in Januari and was the Book review: Delivering Exceptional Project Results. Today I would like to review the book “Microsoft Project 2013 The missing manual” by Bonnie Biafore. We know Bonnie from a number of posts I did earlier; another book review and her guest post about multiple baselines.
Bonnie is an active trainer/author on a number of fields. She has writen 27 books (according to her own blog). Ranging from Project Management and Quickbooks to a thriller called Fresh Squeezed.
One reason why it took me so long to write another book review is because the sheer size of this pill, 786 pages thick! Let’s take a closer look at the book!

Another book about Project Management, written by Jamal Moustafaev (president and founder of Thinktank consulting, among other achievements). I bought this book back when EPM 2010 was brand new. The reason why I bought the book was simple; I was looking for a book that had more information on Portfolio management and particularly on Portfolio Selection. This was because the Project Server 2010 version has the portfolio selection module imbedded out of the box, and that was a separate product in earlier versions. I wanted to read up on Portfolio management because I thought it would become the next big thing in the Project Server world and I knew nothing about it. And the sub title triggered me to get this book: A practical guide to project selection, scoping, estimation and management. Sounds promising right?
———————-Update june 2015————
I have added some free content related to the book on the TPC_OneDrive, go have a look, and read the “read me” file please.

In the time I was busy settling in, in my new role as a dad I got an interesting offer. I was asked by Eric Uyttewaal to join the team to review his new book pre-release. A chance to get my hands on a book before it even hit the shelves, cool! Needless to say I took the opportunity with both hands.
Today the book came in the mail, crispy new. Sadly, this is all I have to show for my reviewing actions, due to limited time as a new dad, and some e-mail trouble, only 3 of the 13 chapters I reviewed got to the team. That’s the reason, I believe, you will not find me in the acknowledgements on page 3.
