1.0 out of 5 stars Expensive Book With Old Information May 9, 2002
By A Customer
Much of the information presented is factually correct, but incomplete or based on old information. Single Ply section, for instance, lacks information about the most common membranes in use today and incorrectly identifies declining technology as current up to date technology. Lack of quality drawings or pictures makes this volume uninteresting. Many other books present up to date information in an easier format.
