What this book is definitely good at is placing emphasis on where influence is greatest - while the project is still in front-end engineering design (FEED) - giving structure to the activities a Commissioning Manager should see executed at each stage in the project life cycle and suggesting some of the key performance indicators (KPIs) that will be relevant to the Commissioning Manager and the project as a whole. The authors have achieved this because they have tackled the subject objectively, and not from simply and Owner's perspective or a Contractor's.
The quality of the diagrams with small font size text are not easy to read and general presentation is lacking. The book would have gained from a thorough proof-read to clear up the many grammatical errors and incorrect use of punctuation, but that is a relatively minor point. No doubt the second edition will take care of these.
Overall, this is an excellent attempt to authoritatively embrace a subject that as far as I am aware, has not previously been tackled in published work. I can state this because I do have over 30 years experience in the industry, have also felt the pain they experienced and very warmly welcome the approach taken by Mr Bendiksen and Mr Young.
Frankly I've never seen a book like this before. And actually I don't think it's even possible to call this a book at all.
It's just a bunch of notes put together without any formatting, full of half-written pages and some black & white copy_pasted tables and diagrams whose definition is so low that they are unreadable !
And it even costs 50 bucks !!
My advice: stay away from this shame.
