3An apparently authoritative presentation marred by production lapses and some coverage omissions.
By rcdenne
The kindle edition, reviewed here, provided a welcome introduction to practice in a (mostly) convenient and affordable way for those of us on the west side of the Atlantic. Regrettably, the illustrative example calculations, which in several places ran over multiple pages, were somewhat hard to follow in that they were in the form of images of tables, which cannot be copied and pasted for closer examination the way one can do with text or a paper version of the book. Another notable disappointment was an editorial lapse (or a perverse joke) in chapter 11 where a table reporting causes of death among scuba divers was substituted for a sample calculation for the valuation of office space. The first 1/3 of the work reviews the legal basis, while the latter 2/3 addresses valuation matters, but from a mostly legalistic rather than a technologically informed perspective. Practice is notably different from that found in North America, both conceptually and practically, to say nothing of differences in terminology. Surprisingly, there is no treatment of how technology is brought into the processes, nor any discussion of data qualification/validation or the statistical or econometric reliability of the inferences drawn from the simplistic analyses illustrated. Also lacking are any statistical data in the way of performance analyses or quality control. The two main public-facing forms and copious citations to case law are provided.
