Buyer beware! I received this book today, and while it seems to be a pretty good book on estimating at first glance with a lot of solid information, I am giving it one star because it's incomplete. I specifically bought the book for it's information on estimating labor and that section is incomplete. On page 86 the last paragraph on the page ends midsentence and doesn't continue on the next page. Instead page 87 begins with a new section heading. There may be more sections missing so be careful. I will keep the book to save me from the hassle of returning it and because I may be able to use information from a lot of the other sections as long as they aren't incomplete as well.

Required text for class, seems pretty complete and has good problems/homework to solve. I dropped the class due to other commitments so haven't read more than 4-5 chapters.
