5.0 out of 5 stars you read and may become a consultant, October 11, 2006
This review is from: Construction Project Management (Hardcover)
I recommend this book for its full coverage on all the aspects of construction management, approaching the real field problems, solutions, tips and the very well explained example that is built chapter by chapter.

Theory and practice merge in a very palatable way. Any one who read it carefully, may become a consultant on Construction Management.
