"…includes major new information on programming, project management, construction contract administration, risk management, and ethics." (chicagoarchitecturetoday.com; 1/09)
"…includes for the first time in its nearly 100-year history, a section called "The Architect in the Political Process." The handbook describes why architects are uniquely qualified to make important professional contributions in the political area. The recognition that a political dimension exists in architectural practice is an important first step for the AIA, and I applaud them for including it in the handbook." (The Architect's Newspaper; Dec 2008)
"Note the fresh emphasis on integrated practice and team building. Indispensable." (Archnewsnow.com, December 2008)
"The "Architect's Handbook of Professional Practice" has been the definitive guide to running an architectural practice for almost a century." (Architectureweek.com, 7/08)

Content (5/5) - This is a must have for ARE studying and general professional use. You'll find yourself referencing this for a variety of things in everyday architectural practice and I believe it's a must have.
Organization (4/5) - The organization of the book is solid and the content follows the index well.
Contract Docs (5/5) - They give you a proprietary code to download PDFs of the AIA Contract Documents to have for reference. This is very simple and arguably one of the most important parts of the book. Buying used makes the code unlikely to work so beware when shopping used to save $$, might not be worth it if the contract docs aren't included.
Layout/Ease of use (2/5) - Page layout is abysmal and difficult to use for long periods of time. The gutter is too narrow and makes reading close to the bind exceptionally difficult, especially on the pages in the middle of the book. The main text could be more narrow to make room for the gutter, Wiley, please change this on the next issue. To make this book more practical for daily professional use and read less like a text book, I would like to see a spiral bound version, otherwise the next one I get will be a PDF version.
AIA should really turn this book into a wiki. The fact that AIA is so far behind on the technology curve is a shame.
it says on the listing that the kindle version is the same as the print. It clearly isn't
what is worse that that it bought the book even tho i clicked for a "sample."
I know i did because that was specifically on my mind to NOT make that mistake
thank goodness my phone gave me a notification of purchase. Otherwise i would have been stuck with this trash
