    Of the five leading textbooks on construction estimating, this one is easiest to read and comprehend and is very popular. It is a bit out of date and lacks a chapter on roofing which seems to be a major omission.

    This book focuses more on the "principles" of construction estimating with emphasis on the admin/clerical aspects of it. Specific examples are few and far between.
