Faster Construction Projects with CPM Scheduling Reviews
This was way better than I anticipated. After 20 years of construction scheduling experience I looked around for a wider perspective and picked this book. This is, as the author agrees, two books in one - a scheduling practice book and the laying out of a vision to save the scheduling "profession." He did both "books" admirably except that the second book is incomplete. After designing a whole new way to use and analyze schedules (the awkwardly worded "Momentum science") in a way that got me excited, he reveals that he plans to do two more volumes to finish out this first book. That was a disappointment, but in reading further I was still really satisfied with the amount of useful and wise insights to chew on. Usually, a scheduling book is something that one looks at once or twice or leaves on a reference shelf to collect dust. With this book I was shocked that I read and enjoyed the whole thing.
This is by far the most interesting and comprehensive book I've ever read on project scheduling. The concept of Momentology is much more viable than Critical Chain and should really deserve more attention.
