I can't explain the double listing by Amazon; I can only say it does exist as of this date. I have seen this book listed as high as $65.00...and it's the same book with the $45 price printed on it. Whatever! I agree with all the other positive reviews of this book.
Helps you manage a priority of what you should do first and what is on the to do list. Helps the professional communicate the concepts to an owner or client.
I was shipped the obsolete, out of print 2004 4th edition, and charged $10 more than the cover price for that edition to boot!!
You have been warned!!
This is the standard textbook for BPI certification candidates, and is a great book. Just don't get taken when you buy it.
