I am a consulting structural engineer who owns and runs a medium sized practice. I bought this book for my office, on a recommendation by a young engineer; he thought it would be helpful for other young engineers. It is an excellent book for lay people, architectural students, and at a push first year engineering undergraduates who are having trouble getting their heads around things. It clearly describes how structures work, the various structural elements, and also materials and forms. The author throws in a few equations, although these are too simplistic for engineers and will probably frighten non-engineers, so one wonders why they are included. To the author's credit however, the book does deal well with contemporary structural forms and gives excellent descriptions throughout.
Overall I like the book, and it provides a good compendium for architectural students and other lay people with an interest in engineering and architecture. However, it is not for engineers at any stage in their careers.

Love this book. Graduated from college without knowing half the stuff in here. This book has changed my thinking on the subject and made me a better engineer.
I wouldn't use this book as a reference tool as such, but if you read and understand the principles contained; it is a very important book to a young engineer. I wish I had it during my college years!

Ideal for the professional engineer. Must have book as part of the technical reference library and suitable for students and those involved with structural design

Bought for a friend in Hong Kong. He said it is very useful and clear. The price was good too.
