From the Back Cover:

Integrating basic theory with practical real-world designs, this second edition covers all aspects of design and building with wood. While retaining many unique features from the highly successful first edition, new additions have been incorporated to reflect recent advances in the field, including the adoption of the LRFD code. This comprehensive text not only contains update on the ASD methods but also provides an explanation of the new LRFD methods, plus solved problems and examples in each section to reflect its application among all areas of designing with wood. This is the only book currently available that contains both the ASD and LRFD methods.
