Roger is probably correct, I am referencing the second edition which is sitting on my desk with duct tape repairing the cover and binding.

I tried teaching ASD from the 3rd edition of this book (as adjunct faculty) and found it impossible! While the book portends to cover both ASD and LRFD, ASD is quickly submerged to where it can't be found. Students became so confused that I told them to put the book away and don't look at it for the rest of the semester and for about 5 years afterward. Then they would be able to discern the differences and pick out what they wanted to know. The one good thing about this book is that it has included copies of reference material, word-for-word, that I have sought out from time-to-time over the years. A.
