    A Good Read!

    Author Donna Deeprose takes you inside the process of setting up and coordinating a project. Her book, a project in itself, no doubt, is as clear and well-organized as the work plan you¿ll be able to create when you finish reading it. As befits an author in the hands-on ¿Smart Things to Know¿ series, Deeprose provides charts, tables and worksheets for designing project activities, as well as a dandy summary of key points at the end of each chapter. She addresses planning in detail and offers examples of how to organize and present your project¿s master plan. While she does not skimp on straightforward logistics, the author emphasizes complex projects, where you have to plan for multiple activities and work with a team of people handling tasks of varying intricacy. Some of the general ideas about planning might be fairly familiar and obvious, but We recommend this book for its greatest strength: a solid presentation of specific procedures.
