    I found the book very useful It contains many lists, examples, and templates that are directly relevant to software project management It is very focused on the subject Also found useful chapters that discussed common causes of success and failure, with case studies Downside is that I found it a difficult book to actually sit down and read Quite a few chapters were mostly reading outlines and lists Although the web site was unavailable 11 8 , the editor quickly 24 hours emailed the templates Impressive customer service
