2.0 out of 5 stars 40% of book is a glossary. Not as useful as other reviews say.
Reviewed in Canada on May 9, 2020
I had high hopes for this book given the plethora of positive reviews. Unfortunately, the book was a let down. The author's tone, as I interpret, is supposed to come across as no-nonsense and frank. It comes across more rude and boorish a lot of the times. In trying to illustrate how not to do things he brings up many stories of his idiot clients - his words.

After making it through 60% of the book I found out the the entire remaining 40% is an alphabetical list of construction terminology definitions - no narrative. While it's great that this is here, it also makes it impossible to read. Imagine trying to read through a dictionary. Since the terms are all alphabetical there is no flow, similarities, or groupings. It's simply term after random term for almost half the book.

I took a picture of a bookmark at the point where the "dictionary" starts. It's almost half the book!
