3.0 out of 5 stars Short, Grad Level Survey Coursebook, January 12, 2007
This review is from: Construction Management (Hardcover)
OUCH! ... and OUCH! I've purchased many texts based on reviews, sales rankings and preveiws, but this is my first major burn. With no reviews, I based my purchase on the high sales ranking. But I don't know who would find this a value. It is a high level survey text. Short chapters with min development. I know enough about the subject such that some chapters are total review while others are nowhere near complete for a topic new to a person. Physically short, small text overall - the white matter is 9/16" thick! Even has the audacity to include the "filler" appendices with copies of contracts. Well written with good grammar, lots of graphs etc. so it is obviously a university favorite somewhere, hopefully with an excellent instructor offering lots of additional commentary. But not remotely worth the whopping price, and wish the author would teach me his secret to publishing negotiations. Short of that, send me a check. Next version, add 200 pages and cut the coverage then add some depth. Maybe if I were in a different industry or discipline (e.g. banking, civil) and this was to be used for an MS/PhD elective?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good resource for me!, January 17, 2007
By 
T.R. (Pennsylvania) - See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Construction Management (Hardcover)
I'm employed as Project Manager for a company which fabricates and erects steel framed commercial buildings. When I first began this job, many administrative processes were less-than-ideal. Chapter 17 covers Safety quite well. We have made changes to our documents and breifings which replicate the guidelines within this book!

I found Chapter 3 helpful. Change Orders are explained well enough for my needs.

Chapter 7 is titled, Project Scheduling. I'd hoped to learn about features and use of common software scheduling programs but instead rec'd a chapter of fairly useless math calculations and symbols which are largley irrelevant in 2007. Hey, software is the way to go!

In summary, I found this book to be well written and organized. I doubt it can be PERFECT for each and every Construction Manager but I'm glad this resource is on my shelf!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not pleased, February 13, 2008
This review is from: Construction Management (Hardcover)
This is the wordiest textbook I have ever read. This book could probably be shortened by 100 pages. When I am reading a textbook I would like to get to the point as simply and quickly as possible.
