Listening to audio books has made me realize how much I love the English language, and how much it bothers me to listen to incorrect grammar and awkward sentences. This book has a lot of good content, but it is far too wordy and it can be hard to listen to because of the aforesaid issues. I got through most of the book but abandoned it before I finished. I do think the Lean Six Sigma section in particular has a lot of good material.

The author is also the narrator, so if you are not good with Texan accents... you may be in trouble. Okay, not really. I have listened to a lot of instructional books, and this guy is especially good at overcoming the obstacles of teaching difficult concepts via audio book. He does a great job of reiterating difficult points and using examples to aid in learning. He also has a wacky sense of humor, which I love. Recommended highly!

This book is great to help you prepare for exam study - it gives a lot of information about the exam itself, how to study, what to expect, etc. Then it hits the high points of the PMBOK and reminds the listener that the PMBOK is the authority for PMI study. Recommended for anyone taking the exam.

I downloaded this book to study for the exam without checking the version - totally my bad. Still, even though the material was outdated for the 2019 exam, it was helpful as a base of study for me. I recommend this book as a supplement to other books for exam study.
