What You Need to Know about Project Management
What You Need to Know about Project Management by Fergus O’Connell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an excellent refresher or even starting book for someone looking to get into Project Management.

I will definitely be reading it again as there were a lot of tips, tricks and advice I will surely need.

Not only is it informative but entertaining as well. There are especially good sections on communication, stakeholders and avoiding burnout.

According to this not enough difference to be toxic to kids and adults.

The below TED Talk is really interesting, the final line is the real story here. Everyone is so obsessed with the sun’s effects and yet it may actually have more benefit than risk. I also have been listening to a audio program the science of fear which talks about how we are effected by fear.
