Only buy if you're an Academic
By A Customer
The book claims to be of use to "practitioners and academics", however this book is of nil to minmal use to anyone actually working in construction project management.
The indepth modelling analysis (and almost exclusively empirical) is of no use to industry, although probably serves well as a statistics course lesson. The complex and empirical tools may have been of use in days gone by when programming and cost and revenue control software did not exist to the extent they do today.
Disappointing waste of money. Do not rely on the editorial brief in making the decision to buy this book.
