Education is critical to everyone in your organization. Learning about technical tools, aspects of project management and dealing with people is essential in improving performance and minimizing your frustration. Between seminars, forums, books, magazines, though, you could spend all your time just trying to find the right item. eCameron has tried to help with that by sharing some of our knowledge and helping our clients and friends get a start on the process. These items may be found in our Blog or eJournal  on our website in the form of discussions, ramblings, templates and procedures.

This section of our website is a list of recommended books and a details about the books that you will not get from the publisher or a bookseller. Below you will find reviews (or a detailed synopses) we have created. In the cases where time has not allowed us to complete a review, but the book is recommended, we have supplied information from the publishers. As we finish the reviews we will modify this page and provide links to more detail. Some of the details will be published in our newsletters but since there are more books than months in the year, some detail will only be found here. Visit this page often to see what is new.

Drive is a must read for anyone that has to motivate people to do anything. As a project manager, part of your job is inspiring people to work on or support your project. You would be foolish not to read this book and follow its advice.

Most people believe that the best way to motivate is with rewards like money —the carrot-and-stick approach. That's a mistake, says Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others). In this provocative and persuasive new book, he asserts that the secret to high performance and satisfaction-at work, at school, and at home —is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world.
