The book itself came in perfect condition, however I found the content really difficult to relate to real life and the organization of the content really confusing. Way too many sections and sections of sections e.g. 1.2.2.3.1, 1.2.2.3.2, 1.2.2.3.3 and so on. If I wasn't required to buy the book for a course, I definitely wouldn't.

Someone once said that the PMBOK is a mile wide and one inch deep. This is so true. It covers a large breadth of information but not in much detail. For PMP/ CAPM prep this is obviously the book you need. But for actual application it is necessary that you find actual examples of PM processes elsewhere as the PMBOK is not that explanatory or descriptive.

I'm a Business Analyst, and one of my goals this year was to increase my competency in PM. I made it a goal to read the PMBOK. Oh. My. God. I've read a lot of books. I have 3 B.A.s and a Masters, and this was the most horribly dry, boring and downright useless book I've read in my life. The layout and content is so repetitive, and the bulk of the content is just diagrams that we're supposed to try to decipher. It's essentially just a book full of PM definitions and the "what" of Project Management. It goes through in excruciating detail WHAT you should be doing when you're managing a project, but doesn't give you even the slightest clue of HOW to do it. All fluff, no real substance and just horrible to read. Awful. If you require this book to pass your PMP then unfortunately you have to read the damn thing. If you're looking for actual real world tools and practical methodology for managing projects - get another book. Project Management for Dummies was way more useful, and I'm not even joking.

Poorly written... Grammar level is less than 3rd grade! They should look for a professional editorial company to edit the book so that each chapter, section, paragraph, and sentence. As it is right now, it obvious that the book (which is supposedly a technical guideline/standard) was assembled putting together a diverse number of contributions and writing styles. PMI should set a higher standard from the book itself.

I found some typos on it and some pages have text cut off, I don't know how they managed that.. but at the end of the page, a few sentences are cut off and doesn't continue onto the next page. I got mine cheaper than regular price so that's good.
Lots of repetition in here, sometimes it feels like deja vu, did they double print the page? Nope just the next section has the same inputs. Good reference book for ppl in Project Management or just want to learn the terms used for PMI.

Honestly, this book is extremely boring and useless in terms of the way it is structured and everything is laid out. It is extremely unhelpful to read and study from because of the horrible way they've worded everything and the really, really, bad layout of chapters and topics. The entire book is a confusing nightmare.
I bought this to study for the CAPM exam, and reading this book doesn't help my knowledge in the slightest. Other unofficial exam prep books such as Rita Mulcahy's are much better suited for studying from and actually provide example questions, etc. I've found CAPM and PMP study guides that are way more interesting to read and useful than this waste of paper.

This book is what it is. A repository of information to be able to pass the PMP or CAPM exam. Don't try to read it like a text book because you will end up hitting your head on a wall. Use it as a resource that it's meant to be.

Most of the reviewers who have given this book low reviews do not understand its purpose. It is not meant to be a "how to" book that explains PM for those who want to know "how" to do it, nor is it meant for those who have not yet taken all the PM certification courses. Rather, it's target audience are those who have already taken all the required courses and want a reference while studying for the certification exam and those who are already certified, but want a quick reference when they need a memory jog. This is why it is just diagrams and lists of definitions and does not contain explanations. When someone from the target audience opens it to look something up they see a speak fix diagram or list and go, "Ah, now I remember what that next step is." This book is not meant to be anything else than a compendium of PM knowledge for knowledgable users and is published by the PM Institute as a professional reference and it meets this goal quite well. Once one understands it's purpose, then you can rate it appropriately. If you need a "how to" book, then other publications are what you are looking for.
