Review:

'How I wish that, when I was introduced to the "theory of structures" and "strength of materials", Millais' book had been available to replace the dense and boring tomes that I was presented with.' – Derek Sugden, The Architects' Journal

'Has someone ever urged you to "go back to first principles" but you could never find out what they were? Well, here is the book that will get you much, if not all, of the way there.' – Structural Engineer

'[Provides] the historically-minded reader with an informative insight into structural matters, from which a better understanding of buildings should come. ' - Construction History

'This book uses simple language to explain complex structural concepts and mathematical calculations. Ideal for students of 1st and 2nd years.'Lecturer, University of Liverpool
