The book was easy to understand and had very helpful illustrations. It did not cover some recent roofing materials, such as 'dimensional' shingles and 'ice guard' eave protection, but using this guide alone, you have all the information you need to roof your first house (it worked for me). P.S. Don't roof it by yourself; you will save a lot of time with a good helper.
I purchased this book as a homeowner and to get an overall understanding about roofing options. The book is exactly what it states: A Quick Guide. It explains different roofing options in a matter of fact manner without going to much into detail.The pictures are clear and show exactly what I needed to know. The book helped me to make a decision and to put roofing on a shed myself.
Some good and useful information presented in an understandable fashion. Some was not as clear or could have used more pic's or elaboration. But I'm still glad I bought it. I recommend it.
This is not the book I would recommend if you want once that really shows you how to roof a house or business. Buy something else.
