  • The Great Bridge - Totally Absorbing
    By Fewheeler
    This book reads like like a well written novel. I had a difficult time putting it down. The Engineering details, the character descriptions, the political and social interactions and the descriptions of life in Brooklyn and New York in the latter part of the 19th century are amazing. If you need a book on the disciplines and processes of Project Management, from writing a project charter to closing procurements, this is it. I felt like I was in a classroom with the best professor I ever had. A real stand out for me with this book were the detailed descriptions of the opening ceremonies. Mr. McCullough misses no detail and allows the reader to relive the excitement, pride and sense of accomplishment celebrated that day. If you want a book that is totally absorbing and inspiring, read The Great Bridge.
