A couple months ago I got an email from Bobby Person at VCengage Learning. They are the published of DeWalt’s series of books-on Building Codes, Electrical Codes, etc.Construction Reference guides, exam guides etc. are all covered.
Cengage was looking for someone to write a book on building decks, which they thought I might be qualified and interested…sad to say I’m not a deck builder but as I posted a blog on the search, Bobby was good enough to mail me a couple of books to look at.
I asked for the Building Code Referencehttp://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=waterproofdec-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0977718395&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr
and the Construction Professional Reference book http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=waterproofdec-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=0975970984&fc1=000000&IS2=1<1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr
and got them shortly after our email exchange.
Reading through these 2 books, I am left with a very good impression…I especially like the Building Code Reference book, it’s wire bound binding and heavy glossy pages look like they’ll take a lot of abuse and use in the field which is where they should be used!
Take a look at the whole series, maybe one of their many available titles would interest you…here are a few I thought would be of interest. Disclosure-I received 2 books free from Dewalk/Cengage. No other compensation is expected.
