If you are studying for the PMP or other PMI certification exam, please note that, at this time, the Fifth Edition is the latest. You should use that edition, not this one, for study/review/reference.

The people who wrote this book surely need a training on how to write with simplicity through examples, case studies etc.
In trying to make their stuff so industry independent, they have produced a big heavy mountain for their readers !
I really do not understand how this could be a popular stuff. An absolute concrete to digest. I gave up way early. There sure are more interesting stuff on project management to read !!!
