Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The top three strengths that I see within the manuscript are the often overlook topic of project management, the creative process approach to a project's life cycle, and an easy-to-read format." Erik Miller Associate Professor The Community College of Baltimore County

"Yes, I like this idea because it forces people to try things. An interactive website for a fake client that comes with certain details to keep the project focused like when working with a client." Kimberly Callery Department Chair for Game Design International Academy of Design & Technology
