This is a good book about project management, but it can be improved. In this day and age project management is done with computer programs. I got an A for the Project Management course, but if I go "into trenches", I will have to tell my boss that I don't have a slightest clue how to use even relatively simple project management computer programs like Microsoft Project.
I'd dedicate a large part of the book to inform students how to use project management computer programs. When you are in the trenches, knowing all the theory about star wars does not help. You have to know how to shoot a lowly rifle.
Then again, this book is not a manual for Microsoft Project. The real problem is that our colleges do not teach real world skills like using computer programs for accounting, project management, etc. After getting your MBA you might have to buy a copy of QuickBooks and learn how to use it.
