If you are an architect, engineer, or contractor and do not have this book for use
in your profession you are missing a lot of information.
It is easy to read and learn from, no more 2D drawings, the drawings are isometric or 3D.
Why we even started drawing in 2D is a mystery to me as an architect.
3D is the way to go and all of the details are shown clearly and understandable.
