Project Management by David L. Cleland, Lewis R. Ireland


Project Management by David L. Cleland, Lewis R. Ireland

The theme of the last edition will continue as authors improve individual chapters by adding a brief introduction that outlines the central points of the chapter and warms up readers for what follows. Each chapter concludes with four additional sections: a listing of additional sources of information in the form of a generously annotated bibliography; a listing of project management principles that summarize chapter content in pithy statements of enduring, universal value; a project management situation--a brief, descriptive case study that illuminates chapter content by way of a practical example; and a student/reader assignment that offers food for thought, discussion, or investigation. More student problems are added in this edition along with new chapters throughout and up-dated chapters where change is warranted. Graphics and illustrations updated with side bar information included throughout and the book with have a new look in a larger 7 3/8 x 9 A trim.

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

You can trust Lovereading to show unbiased reviews by actual, ordinary readers that help likeminded booklovers choose their next great read.

Linda Hill

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.
