God gave man dominion over the earth, and the practical wisdom to use it for his good and His glory God placed the treasures of the earth for man's benefit. Political correctness denies God's goodness, while practical wisdom directs thankful use of His bounty. We were told we could not drill our way out of our problems while practical thinking doers were proving the stupidity of the statement. Ivory tower thinking is of little use to our progress while practical planning is our salvation from crisis. Dishonest charlatans pursue politically correct ideologies, while wise people use practical solutions. Practical plans always trump divisive dreams. Practical planning and hard work built our great nation - political correctness and sloth are destroying it. Practical truthfulness applied to our many problems can, in God's will, overcome the evil plans of our dishonest, lying oppressors. The Golden Rule Jesus gave us is the epitome of practical consideration of others. The Marshall plan after WW II was practical wisdom applied - pacification of Islam before WW III is ideological suicide. Practical plans and hard work built this great nation - ivory tower thinking and slothfulness is its doom. Practical workers build houses on rock foundations - Foolish men build on sand, and great is their fall. See Matthew 7: 24-27. A practical man planning to build a tower, sits down first and counts the cost. See Luke 14:28. Practical people energetically earn their keep and support others - lazy dreamers feel entitled to exist on the fruits of others' efforts. Practical politicians endorse responsible, truthful fiscal policies - dishonest liars waste our resources and leave the pitiful mess for our grandchildren to suffer under. Impractical charlatans promise anything to gain power - practical planners tell the truth, even when it is unpopular. The lies of evil leaders imprison the souls of the masses - the truth shall make us free. See John 8:32. Peace and joy come to practical people. Dishonest dreamers exist in turmoil and fear. One practical person benefits the community more than a score of entitled lay-abouts.

A reasoned yet urgent call to embrace and protect the essential, practical human quality that has been drummed out of our lives: wisdom. It's in our nature to want to succeed. It's also human nature to want to do right. But we've lost how to balance the two. How do we get it back? Practical Wisdom can help. "Practical wisdom" is the essential human quality that combines the fruits of our individual experiences with our empathy and intellect-an aim that Aristotle identified millennia ago. It's learning "the right way to do the right thing in a particular circumstance, with a particular person, at a particular time." But we have forgotten how to do this. In Practical Wisdom, Barry Schwartz and Kenneth Sharpe illuminate how to get back in touch with our wisdom: how to identify it, cultivate it, and enact it, and how to make ourselves healthier, wealthier, and wiser.

"This is an extraordinary book. It differs from other project management books in perspective and depth. Neither boring theory, nor methodology is in the focus, rather the perspective of living for and working in projects. John Chapman provides bits and pieces of practical wisdom. Realizing projects are not rocket science, but common sense and applied ingenuity. Shortcomings in project management are revealed in this book through short stories, with particular sense of humor and malicious joy. Projects are viewed through the lens of a microscope. The insights provided are beneficial for newcomers as well as for experienced people. A great tour d'horizon and masterpiece of our profession" Reinhard Wagner President of International Project Management Association
