The book is extremely helpful. If you want a good understanding of what Project Management is you will want to read this book. The table of contents outline the chapters in such a way that you can flip to the page you need without hesitation. The glossery of terms allow you to become familiar with the terminology of Project Management. Each profession has it's own language and this one is condensed into the book itself. A very good business reference to keep around even if you're not planning to get the certification status.
