Terrific prep book - and a real bargain

I found this book to be an excellent guide in reviewing for the PMP exam, and will definitely keep it as a desk reference too. The CD-ROM of practice questions is particularly helpful in gearing up for the exam.

Excellent book - a must have

I bought this book when it first came out as the "Policies and Procedures Handbook" from Prentice-Hall. Since then the author has rewritten the book and has included several chapters on converting policies and procedures to network or website manuals. I have found that the author has a true command of the printed manual and he has really SIMPLIFIED things by adding the two chapters on online manuals. He stresses the importance of developing a solid printed company manuals system BEFORE building a network or web manual system. He makes that transition very smooth and easy to understand. I have followed his thoughts to the letter and our customers love our new website manuals. I have to thank the author for his wisdom about developing the printed system of policies and procedures AHEAD of a website manual system.

Incredibly insightful overview of the meaning of Open Source

I sat down intending to write Steven Weber a fan letter. (I decided to say it to you all instead.) I loved this book. I have 11 other books on open source, I wanted to learn everything I could because it's such a fascinating phenomenon. I thought I might even write about it. Never mind. Nothing I could write could touch this brilliant work. I had to work to read it. His range of subject matter was incredible. He talked computers like a hacker. He talked licenses like a lawyer. He talked economics like a business man. He talked business models like an entrepeneur or Venture capital investor. He told the history of open source like he was one of the voices of the movement. This book tells the whole story. In fields or industries I didn't know well, I had to google some stuff to grasp the entire meaning.He doesn't baby you. But, I loved that. I learned so much, I'm still bubbling with excitement. The book took two or three times longer to read than normal. But, I didn't want it to end. I've read over a hundred books this year. I've written some myself. Until today, I've never written a review. This book showed me how a book should be written. If you are seriously interested in the extraordinary story of open source, buy this book.
