I must have 20 books on project management, covering various methodologies (agile, waterfall, etc) and spent many hours attempting to shoe-horn my projects & project teams into using various systems with little success - until happening upon Fergus O'Connel's other book 'Fast Projects'.
His writing is clear, well illustrated and puts across his common sense approach to (structured) project management in a manner that I've been easily able to incorporate into all my recent projects (IT)... and get management & team buy-in to use the 10 step approach. It really makes being a PM such a simple role.
I've got 'Silver Bullet' & 'How to run project-based technology companies' and can heartily recommend each/all Fergus' books.
