Both the title of this book and its cover are appealing, but what about the content? Is this book worth reading?</p> </div></div></div> Wed, 10 Jul 2013 13:14:22 +0000 Ciprian Adrian Rusen 107 at http://corporategeek.info http://corporategeek.info/book-review-project-management-book-richard-newton#comments Dream It, Do It, Live It - available in UK and US Stores http://corporategeek.info/dream-it-do-it-live-it-uk-stores-available-pre-order-us <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><img style="float: left; margin-right:5px" src="http://corporategeek.info//files/img/icons/dreamit_cover_128.png" /><em>"Dream It, Do It, Live It"</em> is book that's very dear to us. We had the idea for it in the first half of 2011. We talked it through and decided to go ahead and write it together. Our work started in August 2011 and now it is a reality. Here's what you should know about it and where you can purchase it.</p> </div></div></div> Mon, 17 Jun 2013 13:14:00 +0000 Ciprian Adrian Rusen 104 at http://corporategeek.info http://corporategeek.info/dream-it-do-it-live-it-uk-stores-available-pre-order-us#comments The Project Management Book: Why I Wrote It & Why You Should Read It http://corporategeek.info/project-management-book-why-i-wrote-it-why-you-should-read-it <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><img style="float: left; margin-right:5px" src="http://corporategeek.info//files/img/icons/pmng_book_128.png" />I want to explain why I wrote my latest book - <em>The Project Management Book</em>, and why you should read it. Any new project management book should be challenged with the question – why? There are thousands of project management books, and amongst those thousands there are quite a few that are very good. On top of this there is a constant stream of new books. So it’s easy to conclude we can’t possibly need any more. I am convinced there is space for a different kind of project management book organised in a different way. That’s why I wrote and published <em>The Project Management Book</em>.</p> </div></div></div> Thu, 18 Apr 2013 10:25:58 +0000 Richard Newton 103 at http://corporategeek.info http://corporategeek.info/project-management-book-why-i-wrote-it-why-you-should-read-it#comments Richard Newton's Latest Book Wins "Management Book of the Year 2013" http://corporategeek.info/richard-newton-latest-book-wins-management-book-year-2013-uk <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><img style="float: left; margin-right:5px" src="http://corporategeek.info//files/img/icons/mng_book_128.png" />This week, the <em>CMI Management Book of the Year</em> competition, has announced its winners.

Well... it’s not dead. Quite the contrary! We are in discussions with a great publisher and we hope to be able to sign a deal sometime soon. But, before we get there, we need your help to pick a great subtitle for our book. You helped us pick the title and the end result was quite awesome so... give us a hand one more time.</p> </div></div></div> Thu, 27 Sep 2012 10:47:21 +0000 Ciprian Adrian Rusen 96 at http://corporategeek.info http://corporategeek.info/help-us-pick-catchy-book-subtitle#comments Help Us Pick a Catchy Book Title! http://corporategeek.info/help-us-pick-catchy-book-title <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><img style="float: left;" src="http://corporategeek.info/files/img/icons/Preview-128.png" />We have not posted on <em>Corporate Geek</em> for a while because Richard and I we were busy writing our first book together. It’s a concept both of us never tried before and we are happy with the writing done so far. However, before we finish the book and talk to several publishers, we need your help: <strong>Help us pick a good title!</strong>.</p> </div></div></div> Sat, 21 Apr 2012 10:35:57 +0000 Ciprian Adrian Rusen 89 at http://corporategeek.info http://corporategeek.info/help-us-pick-catchy-book-title#comments Reviewing Web Analytics 2.0 - How Analytics Must be Done! http://corporategeek.info/reviewing-web-analytics-20-how-analytics-must-be-done <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p><img style="float: left;" src="http://corporategeek.info/files/img/icons/webanalytics_128.png" /><cite>"Web Analytics 2.0 - The art of online accountability &amp; science of customer centricity"</cite> - sounds like corporate speak, doesn’t it? The kind of thing you heard before, in messages from your corporate leaders, right? Even though you might answer "Yes!" to any of these questions, this book is not filled with dry, empty corporate speak. It’s really about web analytics. Done right! The way everybody should do it and the way only a few actually do.</p> </div></div></div> Sun, 10 Jul 2011 18:58:00 +0000 Ciprian Adrian Rusen 66 at http://corporategeek.info http://corporategeek.info/reviewing-web-analytics-20-how-analytics-must-be-done#comments
