Reviews of the 1st edition:
'Alan Blanc, without methodological nervousness, plunges in. The book is well served by numerous clear diagrams and plans... filled with practical realism and down-to-earth detail... a marvellous primer for every student.'

'A worthwhile design aid. The structure is less systematic than pragmatic... an excellent work.'

'A fascinating book - not putting the book down is the best way to treat it.'
