this book has been a life saver for me since i bought it. i have just started work as a structural engineer and for the first couple of months i did nothing but annoy my fellow workers by continually asking them questions and seeking their advice. since getting this book i have had to ask far fewer questions and thus my co-workers have received a well earned break from me. i no longer recive death stares from them and all in all the world is a much happier place.

I would tend to agree with the other reviews on this book. However, when put to practice there are numerous typographical errors that change the fundamental meaning of many of the tables and equations leaving the reader in doubt over their validity. This book could really do with a second edition, following a comprehensive proof read and check!

I have been a structural engineer for 2 years now and I had to refer back to the different codes many times a day for simple questions, now I use this book instead. Also, since I bought it into the office everyone else in the office has got their own one.

Book required for structual info. Book contained all relevant information to pass building regs and planning application. Had no knowledge of building regs so purchased book and got all building regs passed with local council saving me paying out for a local company. Easy to understand and in basic terms. Not like must books long winded. Would recommend if building an extension.

A useful book but not without errors. Will have to be updated for the introduction of the Eurocodes. It covers the main structural materials and basic modes of analysis although it does focus on elastic analysis only touching on plastic w.r.t Yield Line Analysis of RC slabs.
Could include more plastic design of steel members and frames (inc. instantaneous centres).
