Welcome! I'm Kathy Schwalbe, Ph.D., PMP, and mother of three! Revised An Introduction to Project Management, Fourth Edition, (and the original fourth edition) offer a general yet concise introduction to project management. The texts use a chronological approach, with detailed explanations and examples for initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing projects. The only difference between the two books is Appendix A. One includes a guide to Microsoft Project 2010 and the other (revised edition) includes a guide to Project 2013.
Note that revised 4th edition and my Healthcare Project Management book are part of Amazon's new matchbook program. If you bought (or now buy) the physical book, you get the kindle version for only $2.99! Be sure to use the links in this paragraph for the matchbook offers. Bookstores can email me for a discount on purchasing books.
PLEASE USE THE AMAZON LINKS BELOW AND SPREAD THE WORD TO BUY MY BOOKS FROM AMAZON DIRECTLY AND NOT THIRD PARTIES WHO ARE LISTED ON AMAZON AND INCREASING THE PRICE! THANKS! THE REVISED 4TH EDITION IS WHAT MOST PEOPLE SHOULD BUY, AND IT'S CHEAPER THAN THE OLDER EDITION.
