Very complete review, including Project Central
I was looking in particular for a book that, besides covering the details about Project 2000, would also dedicate enough space to covering the new Project Central feature that this software includes. Out of all the Project 2000 books I browsed before buying this one, this definitely was THE best one in this aspect. With its help we've been able to set up our Project Central at work. I highly recommend it.

Book is fine, CD is a pain
I found the text worthwhile, but the CD that comes with the book was missing an installation file, which forced me to have to install all of the programs manually. When I called IDG technical support, they said that the only fix was to go ahead and install everything manually, and there was no way to get the additional required file. I would have found it easier to put up with this nonsense if the price of the book weren't so high.

Provides a lot, but does not go far enough
Although the idea of providing resources is a good one, many of them are out of date (addresses and contact information,etc.)
I have used Project before and I am working on a fast track project and trying to learn the new features at the same time. Some of the explanations do not go far enough, but if you are new to MS Project, this is a good beginning.
Some of Microsoft's definitions of project management terms are misleading and in some cases, wrong. The publications on project management that are listed are more correct.
