    The geometry and algebra presented is applicable to aDIY or professional construction project. Contractors have become so dependent upon computers for calculations... It's nice to be able to check or change in the field. Wonderful resource.

      I bought this book to help me with framing questions coming up on a building project. This book is just "as advertised" and would recommend it for the casual DIY weekend project reference guide.

          It would be nice to have an errata sheet w. the book. On page 111, I find a math error. Just makes me wonder if there are others and where they might be. I am sure that this is nothing but a typo not picked up by the publisher. I feel that this is still a good reference.
