2.0 out of 5 stars Needs substantial revision, September 17, 2008
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Choosing Project Success - A Guide for Building Professionals (Perfect Paperback)
This book consists of 3 parts. Part 1 is about observing well to reduce biases, which is unnecessary, because we already know, and the discussion lacks sophistication, so I knock off a star. Part 2 is about managing projects, or rather tips about managing projects, because there is no methodology, or at best disorganized (I knock off another star). The author claims, for example, that value engineering and change management have "rare legitimate use" (p.78), which is poor advice. Most topics are covered in one or two pages; thus change management is covered in less than a page. There is virtually nothing on contract management. Part 3 is about "facts" of buildings, which is little more than simple physics. I look in vain for building design considerations (so I knock off another star), and remind myself that the author is not an A/E designer. There are very few diagrams in the book, so the discussion is hard to follow (e.g. on HVAC). One reason why there are so few diagrams is that it is only simple physics (e.g. V=IR), and little on design or integration of building services. Finally, the imperial system is used, so it is only suitable for US readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Find, August 26, 2008
This review is from: Choosing Project Success - A Guide for Building Professionals (Perfect Paperback)
The material is both a good introduction and detailed information for the experienced construction professional. With out skimping on theory, this book shows how things are really done and why. I particularly like how the book ties construction management together with the technology of building system to explain the entire management process.
