This is a great book for thinking about the things you need to have under control to execute a project - or anything else. The authors look at the theory of the perfectly managed project vs. the reality that clients, stakeholders and team members are human and the world is unpredictable and help you think about how to do your best with this. This includes tips for helping clients and stakeholders be sure they really know what they want and project managers be sure they're executing a project to meet a need, not just to complete a project per the guidelines.
