I was tutored in masonry in my early years of architecture school with an earlier edition of this book. It opened up a whole world of technical knowledge that wasn't weighed down with design-speak or commercials for specific manufacturers. In fact, when I talk with masons and masonry manufacturers they still think of the manual highly. There is a lot more that can be done with brick and block (for that, go google...) but this is a great place to start.

Exactly as wanted and delivered. Book in excellent shape. Better than the library copy. Everything I need to know for concrete work.

This book really assumes you'll be specifying the formula of your mix and goes into detail only a bureaucrat could love. I dislike some of the oversimplified construction texts, but this book goes to the other extreme. Don't buy this unless you work for the Army Corps of Engineers.
