Tres Roeder's 90 percent project success rate stands well above industry averages. I have just recently read your book ‘A Sixth Sense for PM’ and I believe this has been one of the more enlightening project management books I have read.

Tres Roeder's 90 percent project success rate stands well above industry averages. Tools and techniques will always be relevant for the project leader but the practitioner needs to know how to implement these tools. And emotional intelligence plays a leading role. You can not lead or affect change without having the soft skills to implement change. And Tres has captured skill sets which I believe are the foundational building blocks for a successful project leader. It was a pleasure to read this book.

This book is an excellent read, critical to those in any profession involving people skills. I would recommend this book to those aspiring to Project Management, Functional Management, Sales, Oration, Retail, Customer Service, Business Liaison positions, or even as a general life skill. This book will not get you laid; but it will help you to not be such a troll when hitting on a girl at a party, and you'll notice if she's interested or if you should back away.

This book is not an all-encompassing guide to being a person, or even just a better person; rather, it provides a set of ground rules, key skills you want to develop. As with many soft skills books, these are all things which you've either heard of or experienced, but haven't put into words or practice very well. I've been told enough times to "be aware of your surroundings" that it's plain obvious; but then I realized I've never actually applied that, at least not effectively. Now I make a point to notice more, and to take account of the little things like false smiles, a person's posture, hesitations, and careful crafting of words.

Perhaps most importantly, it is a short, entertaining, and informative read. As I've said: soft skills do not transfer like technical skills; they feel obvious, and they cannot be explained readily as processes and solid concepts (or else they'd be "hard skills"). Tres manages to provide a useful pile of generic people skills information in enjoyable prose and with entertaining and interesting adjunct information including social psychology and neural anatomy. What the book does not do, it does not do because it would be impossible or annoying--expanding on information unnecessarily to lengthen the page count does not make for a good read.

The two real exceptions are "Whole Body Decisions" and Negotiation Tips. Tres gives a good explanation and method for considering your feelings when making decisions--in other words, he explains that your emotions and "gut feelings" mean something, and you should definitely re-evaluate your decisions when they disagree with your rational mind in the extreme. We've all been there: it looks good on paper, but something isn't right; the stronger that feeling, the more often we look back in hindsight and wish we'd taken a breath to look just a little harder at the glaring obvious flaw our gut was telling us about. And of course there are things to do when negotiating and times when you definitely do not negotiate.

The long and short of it: Buy this book. It has a fair chance of being eye-opening, a high chance of being an improvement, an extremely low chance of being a complete waste of time, and besides is a short and easy read so at least should be enjoyable and brief if it does waste your time. What can you lose? Ten bucks and two hours? 45 minutes if you're reading via RSVP.

If you are a beginner in the field of Project Management, this should be a mandatory read for you. Due to the skill of the author and editor, this is a very easy book to pick up and read cover to cover. All of the successful project managers I have observed in my 19 years leverage this skill. Read it, take it to heart, and work on your "people skills". Sometimes the only leverage you might have is if the person likes you and wants to help you.

For those like me who have been doing this for many years, this is an easier book to read because it will confirm a lot of what you already knew but never considered in a formal sense. It will also provide some helpful guidance if you keep it on your shelf and thumb through it when you run into a challenge. I will re-read this every couple of years to remind myself of how important this skill really is to successful project management.

Thanks Tres, for shining a light on this skill in our industry!

An excellent, quick read, packed with fundamental methods that we seem to always forget. I agree with Tres, these soft skills truly are what most projects need the most. I like Tres's writing style: Say enough, but not too much, say it in simple terms, and " move on".

All too often project managers, those who are new to the profession as well as seasoned veterans, depend on standard tools and methodologies to manage their projects and are surprised when those projects fail. While these tools are important to the overall success of a project, it is also critical for PMs to understand that projects inherently mean change and change needs to be managed as effectively as the project itself. Mr. Roeder's book provides the insights and guidance on how to tap into the "softer" side of project/change management, and more importantly, how to cultivate and apply these elements to become a well rounded, successful project manager. Unlike many books that advise WHAT must be done to be successful, Mr. Roeder provides tips, tools and techniques on HOW to apply, supplement and/or enhance these skills. An excellent source for new and experienced Project Managers.

The capacity for change is essential for 21st century success, both in business and in life. Tres Roeder's book, "A Sixth Sense for Project Management" discusses the importance of clear communication to facilitate change. Mr. Roeder identifies six skills important for successful communication. His writing style combines personal insight with well researched data to result in a fascinating analysis into the psychology of change. His use of quotes at the beginning of each chapter, as well as, the inclusion of graphs within each chapter add to the depth of this book.

I highly recommend this book for general reading as well for project management.
