Sometimes a book is limited by its subject. I was hoping for evidence that Microsoft Project can be used in a modern software environment to save time and make things easier. Instead, I got something better. This book, in its careful and politically correct detail, convinced me that Project is less useful for software, but could be of utility to users managing bridge building or other huge projects.
In short, the overhead of a tool like Project is enough that it’s not worth the time unless project management is your full time job, and even better if you’re not the only person managing projects.
