Critical praise for the First Edition of Professional Practice101:

"Pressman has a knack for capturing the burning issues of thetime—his latest tome is an attempt to bridge the gap betweenpractice and school, a subject near and dear to many hearts sincepublication of the Boyer/Carnegie study, Building Community."
—AIArchitect

"In my book rating system—Buy This Book, Borrow This Book,or Burn This Book—Professional Practice 101 merits a strongBuy. It's a good reference for young practitioners and peoplestarting their own firms. And seasoned practitioners willappreciate its underlying thesis: the practice of architectureequals perpetual inquiry."
—Architecture Boston

"Pressman's text, as well as the contributions from numerouspractitioners and educators, delivers an engaging dialogue on thestate of architectural practice. Pressman intended this book forstudents and intern architects. However, Professional Practice 101is equally, if not more, relevant to seasoned practitioners andeducators."
—Architectural Record
