I am a big fan of Fine Homebuilding Publications and this book has been a good buy for me. It's full of practical tips on better ways to do things and how to get around problems which inevitably arise in the building process. The bias is towards American homebuilding techniques with a high percentage of timber, rather than masonry, but I don't find that to be a disadvantage. A good purchase for anyone seeking to improve their general knowledge.
