This book provides a comprehensive explanation detailing the design standards used in masonry. This book is a must have reference guide for those who are in the field of Civil Engineering or design of masonry walls. No C.E. should be without one. It provides a necessary reference just like the AISC Steel Structural Book or any other design code books.

The fatal problem is this book is NOT current to the 97 Uniform Building Code, contrary to the advertised description. It is written for the 94 Code. Therefore, it is useless and dangerous for actual design and permit. This book gives a pretty good tutorial, but asumes the reader to be an engineer already and skips key explanations of the process, showing numbers in formulas without referencing where they came from, what they mean, or what units they are measured in. Too cryptic. The reference data is scattered throughout the book, and often doesn't have a cross-reference, so it took me over an hour to read each page of problem, due to hunt-and-peck for clues. The design examples are fairly good but hard to follow, and the problem questions don't have answers or process to check your work. The subject is so complex that it would be scary to formulate a real life problem. The author left out the seismic factors on foundation design, so the answers are very wrong in earthquake areas. The 97 Code changed greatly from the 94 Code, so you will be struggling to learn erroneous information.

All but a couple of these reviews are pretty comical. This book was designed with the engineer in mind; people whom actually know the parameters / coefficients (symbols), know how to use the tables provided and can do the math. This book is not written to be on the shelf at your local DIY hardware store. Bottomline: A coworker in my office had this book and I borrowed it and found it was the best book written for reinforced masonry. If you are an engineer or architect that does structural calculations, this book should be in your library! Might I add, a bargain for under $100.00
