This book contains everything for the first-time project manager - how to choose a leadership style, allocate resources, build a team and cope with unanticipated problems. The self-evaluation test offers readers a chance to assess their own project management skills. **

The Practice of Project Management; Enzo Frigenti and Dennis Comninos; Kogan Page pounds 40.

A heavyweight handbook, best suited for those who project manage frequently. It includes a jargon-busting list of project management-related acronyms at the front (do you know what STEEPOL stands for?).**

The Project Management Pocketbook; Keith Posner and Mike Applegarth; Management Pocketbooks pounds 6.99

Small yet informative, this pocketbook packs in a lot of information. By the end of the book, you'll be discussing GANTT charts like a pro. The authors also have a refreshing emphasis on the people, as well as the tasks, involved. ***
