Just thought I'd add a review (my first) for this book, as I find it easier to review books that have a practical purpose. I bought this book at the start of a 2 year HNC course in building services, believing that it would be an invaluable tool in my studies. The reality of it though, is that although the book is informative and written by people who are obviously knowledgeable on the subject, it stretches itself too thin, trying to cover every aspect of the profession. This results in a book which offers a great introduction to the subject, at national certificate level, but offers little for students studying at HNC level and above. I personally found myself using module specific books from the college library, as well as using their subscription to info4education for access to guides from CIBSE and the like, in preference to this. In short, I'd recommend using your institutions resources over this.
