97 things every project manager should know
O’Reilly continues its serie “97 things” with this “97 Things Every Project Manager Should Know“.
I’d like to define this kind of books as post-modern book: their contents are released under Creative Commons, every piece last just two pages and they are written by a large group of authors; they are a sort of blog on paper.

I started to read with great expectatives: most of authors are well known in Project Management world, and the format is very attractive.
Neverthless I found it too high level and, in some part, too superficial for my taste: I cought myself thinking “… and so?” too often.

In conclusion, I suggest this books only for novice project managers, otherwise a book as “Manage It!” by Johanna Rothman is more suitable.
