While obviously intended to serve as a preparation textbook for professional engineering exam, it provides all essentials concepts and practical solutions for Seismic Design on a decent engineering level. It is not a how-to-do manual, but sufficiently updated with current UBC development and details it is very handy to have it around for a practicing engineer.

I cannot express my regret at not having this with me at the seismic portion of the California Civil PE exam. This is one of Lindeburg's best, and is a great reference for the exam and in daily use in seismic design. Well worth every penny. My only hope for this is that he updates it once California (finally) adopts the IBC building code.

I bought this book to study for the PE Structural 1. It is a thorough, item by item book that has excellent symbol references, clear definitions, worked examples etc. The author is interested on you, the reader, understanding seismic design, unlike many of the other books on the market that cater to someone impressing their literary peers. The UBC 97 was a landmark in Seismic design, and although I agree with the other reviews that it may seem "out of date", I found it helpful to use this book to learn the fundamentals regading seismic, which are still the same in today's codes. Excellent chapters on vibration and diagphragm analysis. All I can say is that it helped me tremendously in the PE, which is the reason I bought it.

Please see my review of the 3-book series in which this book is typically purchased in the reviews of "Seismic Principles Practice Exams."
