The Deadline: A Novel About Project Management von Tom DeMarco

If you normally fall asleep while reading books about Project Management, give this one a try. Set in the form of a novel, the reader follows the experiences of a Project Manager charged with bringing home a series of project with typically impossible deadlines.
This is not a text book. If you're new to Project Management, I recommend that you start elsewhere. However, if you've been involved in projects or find yourself in the lucky position of being a Project Manager, this book provides some valuable ideas about how to improve your project -- or at least cope with inevitabilities.
If you enjoy this book, also look at "The Goal" by Eliyahu Goldratt and Jeff Cox,… Mehr dazu

I'm sorry, but I just don't understand how my fellow Amazon reviewers could have scored this book highly.
The first chapter sets up a potentially enthralling narative style, and the concept of a TV show that gives viewers infinite bliss (so much so that they ignore things like eating and living) is great. However, it's all downhill from there.
The book seems to spend forever talking about tennis and drugs, without particularly wanting to tell a story. If this is the perfect example of a 'contemporary' story, then I'll stick with the classics.
Don't say you haven't been warned!
