Quality: p.246 "Error! Bookmark not defined" How does that end up in a published text? There were proof-readers? Perhaps not. P.319: Question: Which knowledge areas include tasks related to monitoring and controlling? Answer: All of them! Well, not quite.
100 pages of this is related to software usage - not quite value unless you want to use both MS Project and @Task and you have little experience with either.
Questions related to 'Alpha Project Managers' isn't appropriate in a publication of this type. While explained earlier in the publication as related to a single text, the content of metrics is repeated in the book and then the Q&A asks the reader about 'Alpha Project Managers'. I don't think jargon is appropriate.
P.353 - I suppose you can reference Wikipedia if you wish to establish a definition. Nasty for instructors when students start to query the authors ability to do so when they aren't entitled in their own papers.
However, I will be positive and indicate:
This is a readable text (at least at the level of the incremental detail.) It offers a lot of additional online instructor content (of value if you wish to use this text as the basis for a course. Much less so if you don't.)
