5My Bible for Structural Design
By L Scott ONeal
I bought this once a long time ago. This new edition is even greater. I use it all the time in my work. If you work in any of the fields like Architecture, Engineering, Construction, etc. you need this. It is simple to read and understand if you take your time. I would recommend that you buy it if your are in Architecture or even Engineering. It is a manuel that will get worn out (my 6th edition is tatered) so I got the new 10th edition.

By Jim M
I haven't finished it, but so far it has been very good. It helps to have had a class or two in physics. It is what I expected and will be a good reference in my work as a building inspector. Great buy. Fast service. Book was in good condition as described by seller.
