This guide won't teach you to be a better project manager. However, it will put the work we do into context and help us better articulate the value we bring to the organisation. Its a must read for anyone wanting to pass the PMI certification. I passed my exam at first attempt using this plus Rita's PMP Exam Prep guide. The PMBOK does get updated often. Make sure you understand which version your exam will be leveraging (they introduce changes to the exam slowly after each update).

Format: Paperback
It is what it is, a guide to the project management body of knowledge as defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI). The book is in fact knowledge filled and provides more of a framework than a methodology. This is a must read for anyone considering pursuing any of the PMI designations/credentials or just a career in project management, definitely in North America and slightly less so internationally, as it arguably provides the basis for further reading in the subject matter and what PMI defines as "generally acceptable". The book itself is not one of the easier books to read but you'll find yourself getting used to the style, if you can even call it that, the more pages you get through; this is one reason the book didn't get the full 5 stars. The other is that, even though corrections in the form of errata have been available since March 2009 I still managed to get a copy of the first printing in September. This isn't the worst thing in the world but certainly an annoyance when purchasing a brand new copy of a book. So if you manage to receive the first printing or are unsure of what you've received look here, [...] .

Used this book to prep for the CAPM exam. It was easy to read, easy to follow and was a great learning tool. I would recommend this to anyone in a PMP course or to those that are interested in learning more about Project Management.

Project arrived on time, bran new and still in the plastic wrapping.

The PMBOK, is a very useful book to pass the certification exams of PMI.

However, this book of 350+ pages is very badly structured, and just provides lists of processes, tools and activities that a project manager should apply. There is no clear or in-depth explanation given for any reason why one tool is better than another, or when a certain method is appropriate of not.

In conclusion you could buy the book if you are studying for an exam, but the PMI should take it's function as a knowledge center more seriously and take the scope of this "Body of Knowledge" beyond the joke that it currently is.

Any one who is interested and has done research on PMI.org, knows for the 'Project Management' field, it starts with this book.
Best price is on Amazon, which is a good thing since the new edition is coming out in the new year.

This book makes a cumbersome and convoluted mess out of something which should be logical and streamlined.

It is supposed to teach you everything you need to know about project management - had I read it before entering the field, I believe I would have assumed that the field was worse than useless.

Unfortunately, it, and its updates, are required if you expect to pass the expensive exam for either CAPM or PMP.
