The storyline with one of the characters and his concern with his materialistic wife was laughable at best. Highly recommended for any production or systems engineering focused person as it will help you improve overall efficiency if you follow the concepts in the book.

Maybe time for a reboot with an actual update addressing the reasons that we’ve never adopted a better method to PM. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. It reads like fiction, minus the sex and psychological struggles. This book is really hard to evaluate for me.
