This was prescribed reading when I studied Project Management at the USB graduate school of business. It is an easy-to-read book compared to something huge and scary like Kerzner, but unfortunately it has several spelling/grammar mistakes, and that sort of thing irritates me a bit. I do, however, recommend it to my own students. I see there's a new version out now.
