About the Author
Jennifer Greene, has spent the past 15 years or so building software for many different kinds of companies. She's worked for small start-ups and some huge companies along the way. She's built software test teams and helped lots of companies diagnose and deal with habitual process problems so that they could build better software. Since her start in software test and process definition, she's branched out into development management and project management. She's currently managing a big development team for a global media company and she's managed just about every aspect of software development through her career.
Jennifer founded Stellman & Greene Consulting with Andrew Stellman in 2003, initially to serve the scientific and academic community. They have worked in a wide range of industries including finance, telecommunications, media, non-profit, entertainment, natural language processing, science and academia. They do speaking engagements, provide training on development practices, manage teams and build software. Together, they've written two highly acclaimed books on project management (Head First PMP and Applied Software Project Management), Head First C and most recently just finished up Beautiful Teams.
Andrew Stellman, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar. He and Jenny first worked together at that same financial software company, where he was managing a team of programmers. He's since managed various teams of software engineers, requirements analysts and led process improvement efforts. Andrew keeps himself busy eating an enormous amount of string cheese and Middle Eastern desserts, playing music (but video games even more), studying taiji and aikido, having a girlfriend named Lisa and owing a pomeranian.

I had bought my copy of Head First PMP in December 2013. I received it in 3 working days, in excellent condition. As for the content of the book - the topics and the questions covered exactly follow the actual examination. I studied the book cover to cover 2 times, and attempted all the questions by simulating real exam conditions. The model question templates that Head First highlights have all appeared in the real exam.
In the actual exam, there are lots of scenario based questions, and this book prepares you for exactly that. Don't get carried away by the 'free questions' available on the internet that mostly focus on knowing ITTO (Inputs, Tools, Techniques, and Output) theory. Rest assured that if you study the contents of this book properly, you will clear the exam with ease.

Now, I must agree with most of the reviewers here that the binding quality of this book is 'pathetic'. So bad that as soon as you start flipping through pages, they start falling down like stack of cards. I agree that one shouldn't be complaining since the book is made "legally" available in India at its 1/7th of international cost but, seriously, we deserve a little better too.
Headfirst changed that impression - the way they break down the subject matter into everyday experiences that we can relate to, is absolutely brilliant. The hundreds of questions, crosswords, head-libs, and quizzes were the stepping stones. I cleared the exam by reading Headfirst alone. I skimmed through the PMBOK Guide on the day of the exam, just to make sure there aren't any concepts I might have missed out on.
I realize some reviewers had issues with the quality of the book binding, but I didn't have that problem.
Thanks to seller for replacing the book after a my initial review. Fabulous customer service.
