About the Author
Jennifer Greene, has spent the past 15 years or so building software for many different kinds of companies. She's worked for small start-ups and some huge companies along the way. She's built software test teams and helped lots of companies diagnose and deal with habitual process problems so that they could build better software. Since her start in software test and process definition, she's branched out into development management and project management. She's currently managing a big development team for a global media company and she's managed just about every aspect of software development through her career.
Jennifer founded Stellman & Greene Consulting with Andrew Stellman in 2003, initially to serve the scientific and academic community. They have worked in a wide range of industries including finance, telecommunications, media, non-profit, entertainment, natural language processing, science and academia. They do speaking engagements, provide training on development practices, manage teams, and build software. Together, they've written two highly acclaimed books on project management (Head First PMP and Applied Software Project Management), Head First C#, and most recently just finished up Beautiful Teams.

Andrew Stellman, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records--which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar. He and Jenny first worked together at that same financial software company, where he was managing a team of programmers. He's since managed various teams of software engineers, requirements analysts, and led process improvement efforts. Andrew keeps himself busy eating an enormous amount of string cheese and Middle Eastern desserts, playing music (but video games even more), studying taiji and aikido, having a girlfriend named Lisa, and owing a pomeranian.

Thankfully, it is using the same terminology as PMBOK and they explain the ideas in a way that you GET IT. I would highly recommend this book if you're new to the PMP terminology and want to get your head around things.
However, I'm also using Rita's book to read exam pointers & exam questions AFTER I read the chapters in Head First. Rita's book gives many reminders on how the questions are in the real exam, which is good to keep in mind as you're studying.
Based on my search Head First questions are easier than the actual exam questions, whereas the exam questions Rita's book are more realistic. I'm using both books to study for the exam.
As for Amazon: I'm thoroughly impressed and very happy with Amazon's service. The book is in mint condition, of course - but I was floored that I ordered the book late Saturday night (after midnight) and it arrived Monday morning - with standard free shipping. I would recommend using Amazon over Chapters any day. Same book was 92$ in-store at Chapters and was 50$ at chapters.ca but it was same price as Amazon ($48) if are Chapters irewards member. Why would you pay to get discounts? Amazon prices are better and so is the service. Awesome!!
Book arrived timely and in brand new condition. Definitely a keeper for the shelves.
