Successor definition from more than one resources

Routing TCP/IP, Volume I, Chapter 8: (EIGRP)

Successor: The neighbor that has been selected as the next hop for a given destination based on the Feasibility Condition.

Semester Five Companion Guide Text book Page 249 under "DUAL Finite State Machine"

((Successor is neighbor (please pay attention to this and compare it with the next definition) router that is currently used for packet forwarding; it provides the lest-cost route to the destination and it is not part of a routing loop))

In the same book Page 246 under "EIGRP Terminology"

((Successor--A successor is a route selected as the primary route to use to reach a destination))

I feel that these 3 definitions are not same ?
