Are you an accidental manager? Then you won't be able to put this book down! For all those technical professionals who suddenly discover the skills that made them successful are not necessarily relevant to their new roles as project management practitioners, Dobson provides a useful, practical and highly readable guide.

Using references from popular films and cartoons, he provides solid information and extensive documentation - all delivered with humor and perspective. In addition to showing technical professionals how to handle the emotional challenge of management, this book also provides a glossary of key terms and concepts, along with a handbook for dealing with the unique challenge of managing "Generation X" professionals.
