Not being a structural engineer, I can't rate the book on correctness of information. The book is not a cohesive manual or text, but rather a collection of articles from the Journal of Light Construction over the years. Who knows when some of these were written - the book was printed in 1999, so some obviously came well before that. There are 35-40 authors here. If you're a home builder looking for some random tidbits to improve your repertoire, this might be good. If you're trying to learn framing from scratch, this is not the place to start.

Good service, great book

practiac visual book on not your everyday framing, book has good ideas and things to know
