Title: Good Reference Book for Prestressed Concrete Design
A good all around text book is "Design of Prestressed Structures" by T.Y. Lin and Ned Burns retails for about 160 but shopping around I found 106 at Barnes and Noble (  You can also look at the Post Tensioning Institute's web site and get yourself a copy of the Post-Tensioning Manual, I think the current version is the 5th edition.  They are also selling a primer on PT design by Bijan Aalami and Alan Bommer.

I've searched through the archives but have seen no history of this question being asked.  Anybody have a recommendation regarding a good, practical prestress concrete design book ?  I have the PCI Design Handbook (5th ed.) and I am looking for a "companion" reference.

Thanks in advance.
