Format: Hardcover
There are many books that construction professionals should, and will, have. This should be one of them. There are 1135 pages of information packed into this book, with authoritative references, tables, and plain English discriptions of building materials. The book uses the CSI format for chapters. I learned long ago that the price of a book is relative: Yes, $70.00 is a lot when compared to a six pack of beer, but is peanuts when based on information presented. Information is power. This book has plenty of it.

As the other reviews stated this book is in depth. If you are a building professional than you should already know the fundementals and require a reference that is the basis of your field. This book is too exausting for school, but as soon as you move to the office you should use it as the starting point for your details, CD's and specs. I used this book to study for the ARE and it has also come in handy when questions arise on the construction site with contractors. I have always felt that, as Architects, we have enough books all about subjects that we hire consultants for ie. Structures, MEP but we are the ones who need to be the experts about our handicraft: Construction.

It is certainly THE BIBLE for construction. Boy, I sweated it! But, if you can get through it, it is certainly worth the efford.

Certainly THE bible in the construction industry. The problem is the depth to which this book delves in discussing rather dry, mundane topics. I guess if someone needs to know just about anything in construction, it's here, but be forewarned that there is an IMMENSE amount of information that must be waded through in order to find a specific piece of information. Often used as a textbook in Constructing 101 since it is so exhaustive in its scope (we spent an entire semester on only 1 chapter!). Also makes good reading for insomniacs.

This book is a great desk reference for any materials needed in construction. I am a student and find myself going back to this book semester after semester. Great Book.
