catI’ve had the ebook of Microsoft Project 2010 Inside Out by Teresa Stover, Bonnie Biafore, and Andreea Marinescu on my laptop and my Kindle for quite some time now, but only now I can finally write a review about it.

Consisting of more than 1200 pages, this book basically contains everything you need to know about using Project 2010 to manage projects. Not only does it cover the fundamentals, but it also guides you through how to develop a project plan (Part 2), track the progress of your project (Part 3), and get reports about it (Part 4). Additionally, it covers more advanced topics such as how to manage multiple projects (Part 5), how to integrate Project 2010 with other Microsoft products (Part 6, talking about the Office suite and SharePoint), how to manage projects across your company (Part 7), and finally how to customise Project 2010 to suit your needs (Part 8). Each of these parts consists of several chapters, focusing on different topics related to the corresponding part.

In each chapter, you learn more about the relevant details, and you also get to know some helpful tips. On nearly every page you can find helpful screenshots that support the text well, making it easier to read (the topic becomes less dry!) and understand.

The book serves very well as a lookup resource if you quickly want to check how to do something in Project 2010. In my opinion, it can be considered as one of the standard books that everyone who’s using Project 2010 regularly should possess. For beginners to Project 2010, it may contain too much information for a start, Bonnie Biafore’s book Successful Project Management: Applying Best Practices and Real-World Techniques with Microsoft Project may be the better choice here.
