How do you make the bible better? You get the writer to outline the plan before his death and appoint an heir apparent to write the new edition. That's just what Frank Brannigan did. The 4th edition has been reorganized into three sections: the fundamentals of building construction, building types, and special hazards. The new edition is full-size format and in four-color, and has supplemental instructor and student materials which can be purchased separately. Lots of new illustrations and examples; new textbook pedagogy (objectives, case studies, chapter summaries, review questions); workbook with additional case studies and lots of review exercises. This new edition adds a perspective of how buildings are built: not just the TYPES of buildings and their hazards, but how they are built. This is information that will save firefighters' lives. A new Concepts of Construction chapter presents an overview of building construction concepts that lay the foundation so that the remaining material in the text is even easier to grasp.
