This is an incredible resource. I'm a Structural Engineer in the Nuclear Industry and this book is as indispensable as the Steel Manual.
One note of caution: the book is available new from the publisher's (The James F. Lincoln Arc Welding Foundation's) website. Shipping fees are a lot higher, but you might get a better deal than you can see from resellers on Amazon.
I do not mean to imply that this is an easy to understand reference. I teach steel design 1 using McCormac and Csernak (have used Segui too) rather than this or Salmon, et al, because the material presented, while less thorough, is easier for the first-time student to comprehend. For the more advanced student or practitioner, the thorough and complete treatment you get from this book and from Salmon, et al, are really valuable. Given the relative low cost of this book, owning it is a no-brainer if you are a structural steel design engineer.
That said, even with the deserved 5-star review, I wish that they would do an updated version that references the modern LRFD limit-states, where appropriate, and that adds an index. I would buy the book a second time to get an index.
