From one review:

This is an excellent resource and reference for struggling projects (not just bona fide problem projects requiring rescue). Todd has captured, with tangible examples, case studies, and explanations the work required to identify and remove projects from the point failure. This is a must read for all levels of management who rely on project execution for their business' success.

It has the traits of a new project, and everyone should treat it as such."  Read more... (Requires free login)
