I just got my printed copy of Microsoft Project 2010: The Missing Manual by Bonnie Biafore, that I was fortunate enough to be able to tech review while it was being written. The book is absolutely excellent, both for the information on Project 2010, but also the tips and tricks that Bonnie includes throughout that are useful for Project managers of all kinds.
I won’t include the table of contents or abstract here, but you can pick the book up at finer bookstores everywhere, including:
I strongly recommend you pick up a copy for yourself, one for the road, one for Grandma, and a few to hand out as party favors for your kid’s kindergarten graduation. They make great stocking stuffers as well.*
All kidding aside… the very first (readable) book I ever read on project management was On Time! On Track! On Target!, an MS Press book that happens to have been authored by Bonnie as well. Great author, great book, and I learned quite a few tips and tricks that I was able to apply in Project 2010 (which is a HUGE upgrade to previous versions) and to projects I am leading at work.
*Disclaimer: Although I was a tech reviewer for this book, I do not get any commissions from any sales of the book, or from click-throughs to any of the book stores listed.
