Format: Paperback
I am a civil engineer, and have read a number of textbooks and journals on engineering failures and forensic engineering. I think this book is the best I've read. A multitude of cases are separated into sections based on the general area of cause; structural statics and dynamics, structural analysis, mechanics of materials, etc. It contains many varied cases, each covered in an informative and interesting manner. I would recommend it highly.

Not only is this book an excellent study for Civil Engineers, all Engineers would benefit from reading this book to see how to express technical details in a very clear and concise fashion. In addition lessons learned are very valuable in the fact that at certain points the warnings were there but a person or persons were so adamant that the obvious signs were either overlooked or ignored. Ramming a project through is all well and good if you have the right team in place with all the What Ifs fully discussed and explored. A very valuable tool for any reader and particularly useful for accredited and non accredited Civil Engineers. As a professional Electrical,Mechanical and Civil Engineer I found this book refreshing, absorbing and instructive.

A valuable book for every student or graduate of Civil Engineering. It puts the "touch" on the small details that create a real tragedy. Well organized topics. Definitely a good work of Mr. Norbert J. Delatte.
Without a doubt, should be a required subject in schools.

I do not give 5 stars only because of the poor quality of the photographs.
