I have used this book in various edition formats and wanted to upgrade to the latest edition.
Think that I was being clever and thinking that it would be useful to have this book on my tablet so that I always had a copy with me, I bought the kindle edition.
It does not work! The format of the kindle edition has too many bugs to mention but basically it renders the information pretty much unusable, leaving images on different pages as the relevant text and columns out of sequence to name just two.
It looks as though someone has converted the hardcopy into data without any consideration to usability.
I have tried two different devices, both ipad an windows tablet and both are the same along with trying different reader settings to no avail.
Feel like I have wasted my money, ONLY buy the hardcopy!

Format: Paperback
Excellent and complete guide to every building detail you could imagine. I bought it thinking it was a book about tendering and managing building projects, so it was totally not what I expected, but it was so good I decided to keep it anyway.

As a self-builder, this book is an absolute treasure and although aimed at the trade, explains things in an easily understood manner even for the non professional. The illustrations clarify everything and are excellent. Worth every penny.

Great Book, should be used as the go to text book for any gaps in technical knowledge. Some elements are outdated but it still helps to provide a good understanding from which to progress from.

Worth the money.

After leaving the education establishment more than 20 years ago, I still found that this book has a lot to offer from the simple things to the, scratching your head and saying how do I do that?
Money well spent!
