One of those "wish I could give negative stars" cases. I couldn't finish this book, it was so incredibly awful. The beginning of the book is full of testimonials and quotes and other nonsense that had me thinking I had somehow found my very first piece of Kindle spam. The writing is at the level of high school girls passing notes in class. I think the author is attempting humor, but instead it just makes her sound like she has no idea what she's talking about. The tone of the author bio in the back only reinforces that impression. There is little to no actual substance. The examples are anecdotal at best. The "graphics" or occasional lists and tables use a font that is nearly unreadable and offer very little useful information. You might find more helpful tips from a bad motivational poster, in fact. The author never, ever, touches on any true project management guidelines. She doesn't even bother to explain what a project is -- that it has a deadline and a specific goal. You might sort of get that gist after you're in the third or fourth chapter. Overalll, this book was worthless. For a valuable but timely project management book, try A Project Guide to UX Design.
