    Usually, when you’re turned off by a technical book, it isn’t because you’re too stupid to read it – it’s because the concepts lack illustration in a way that promotes stimulation. This book has big helpings of illustrations made especially to enhance the experiences of learning what would otherwise be difficult or at the least abstract ideas in statics. The thrust is architecture, but the worth of the book goes beyond architecture into engineering. Excellent for community college courses in construction and mechanics.

    I am taking a Structures class for my construction management degree. I purchased this textbook as a back up to the one that was assigned. The illustrations and sample problems cover the topic clearly and systematically. I recommend the book for those interested.

    Don’t waste your money in the campus bookstore. Older versions of the same book have 99% of the same information.
