Industry Reviews

"This handbook is a very practical guide that addresses the day-to-day needs of professional project schedulers and managers. It is appropriate for residential, commercial, industrial, and civil construction ventures . The most intriguing aspect of the book is the computer disk included in the back. This disk includes a project scheduling program [which] can be adapted for nearly any size construction company and is appropriate for any size or type of construction project. This book is recommended for academic engineering libraries that support programs in construction management. It is also recommended for special libraries connected to construction companies." - E-Streams, Vol. 7, No. 3, March 2004 "This edition will definitely be on my shelf and if you're serious about carving out a successful career as tomorrow's American buildergrab this very special book in a hurry before they sell out."
