The Free Section

Free stuff that you can have from this website right now.

Simmering Ideas: the blog for this site. You can read it without registering.

Most of the rest gets delivered as a link to your e-mail address. So I do ask for that, and you will also be registered for far-too-infrequent messages about new resources etc.

Book-Related Resources

First: a really cool deal. Here’s how to get paperback copies of my books for free. No, this is not one of those bogus “but you pay shipping charges” scams. This is the actual paperback book, signed by me, and delivered at no cost to you.

If you have already bought one of my books, then you have access to the forms, practical exercise and so on related to those books, plus some supplementary materials and videos as I find them and add them, at the Simmer Community website.

A real book (130pp), published as a service to frustrated project managers: Simmer Down: How to Deliver Successful Projects Despite Impossible Deadlines and Unrealistic Budgets (Kindle is free; 130pp Paperback available)
