Review:

Leroy Crist, Southeastern CC, IA.: I would be interested in seriously reviewing it for adoption consideration. It looks superior to any of the current texts I have reviewed.

Philip Reed, Old Dominion University, VA.: I really like the material on green techniques and heavy emphasis on codes. I think this is something that is missing from AD&D. I also like the idea of a chapter on remodeling and renovations.
