As a manual/educational aid this book does do a pretty good job. Not so heavy going as most of these type of manuals. Each section is focused on the topic in hand so you can either go to a process (preferred method) or theme and identify the input/outputs and principles involved. One of the very useful aspects is the roles and responsibility matrix. All round good. Seems expensive, but in the context of doing Project Management properly (or passing the exam) it is fair value.
