This book tells a lot about demolition. Lots of photos which are not needed. But an overall good book. Many rules that are done regarding a demolition are not mentioned that should be. For example, when demolishing a structure, it is best that any reclamation of wood, steel, or other items from the building structure prior to demolition be supervised. As, removing removing building supports can cause the building to fall differently. There are a few other minor issues, but its a god book. I would like to be able to purchase less expensive paperbacks though.

First off, I am in now way affiliated with these authors, publishers, or trying to promote anything within its pages. If this book isn't suggested study material for every state contracting licensing exam, it should be. Very informative and very comprehensive. The authors were dead on and know their field extremely well. On a business level, I would never recommend this book, (upper hand to the competition !). Unfortunately, I still have a small amount of honor and integrity left in me since becomming a contractor and I have to give this book the recognition and praise it deserves. Great job guys!

This book was a quick over view of the practice of demolition! Does not go into great detail on any one subject but covers nearly every subject on the surface! Good place to start and supplies places to look for next reading!
