    Excellent Reference - A Keeper

    As a downsized employee looking to expand my skill set in new media project management, I can say this that book is an excellent reference book that doesn't read like a reference book. The material is presented in a clear and concise manner and shares insights not normally discussed during the execution of a project until a problem comes up. The book has the right amount of balance between the project team implementation and the client relationship instead of a particular software or hardware solution, leaving the reader to do their own research and decide what's best for their particular scenario.
