    “I have been working in project management science 1984, most of the books offer almost the same content with a few innovative ingredients. This is different. A refreshing change of concepts, useful form the novice to the advanced project manager. I’m sure the reader will gain new powerful knowledge, easy to put into practice to achieve great results, such as the ones I’m beginning to get.”

    “Honestly? I wish I’d read this book 20 years ago. It’s a “how to” book. You’ll learn how to make good project promises, through good planning, and then how to keep those promises, through good execution. Mark’s advice is pragmatic, it’s easy to understand, and vitally, it doesn’t just work in theory, as you read it, it works in the real world.”
