This is an excellent book that is easy to read and is of great practical value for engineers and construction people. It is a rare example where practical ethics and practical law associated with engineering and construction are integrated. The book contains numerous case studies with in-depth analyses of consequences of actions. This is possible because the author is both a licensed professional engineer and a practicing attorney with extensive experience in consulting, practice of law, and teaching.
