It looks superior to any of the current texts I have reviewed.Philip Reed, Old Dominion University, VA.: I really like the material on green techniques and heavy emphasis on codes. I think this is something that is missing from AD&D. I also like the idea of a chapter on remodeling and renovations.Alan Jefferis has been a drafting instructor at Clackamas Community College for more than 27 years.
