Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is fairly well written. I noticed a few typos / factual errors, but that tends to be true of a lot of technical books that are published nowadays. I think the technical content of the book has been worth the purchase price. The book covers a variety of general technical issues related to the construction of tall buildings, sometimes on difficult site conditions. A good overview of the subject. Tends to focus primarily on structural engineering issues, which as a structural engineer myself, I appreciate.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By boatman on March 31, 2007
Format: Paperback
I was searching for a book regarding high-rise concrete construction and settled on this one. As I suspected, the information in this book does not represent how things are done in the US market. (NOTE: Bamboo scaffolding on page 305 and shirtless/shoeless workers on page 213). The portion of the 417 page book related to concrete frame construction is only 20 pages. The book is not entirely useless but covers all topics only very briefly.

By Robert King on July 24, 2012
Format: Paperback
This books is mainly centred on work in asia,
is poorly written and sometimes inconcise. I was looking for a book that
would offer detailed info on general construction of high
rise for the professional engineer, all i got was a book that might be of some little use for a first year
student in engineering. Altogether a bad choice
