Re: Any Young Engineers Out There?

I haven't had the opportunity to do so yet.  Although I ordered the Manual last fall from AISC, they have told me they won't be sending it until February do to some issues with their printer.  Where did you get yours?

Subject: RE: Any Young Engineers Out There?

Here's the question that I want to see answered...and mark my words, it
will probably be asked before a year has gone by:

"How many engineers here--regardless of age--took one look at the new
Thirteenth Edition AISC Manual of Steel Construction, put it up on their
bookshelves and went right back to the Ninth Edition?"

(N.B. It's gonna take forty years traveling in the wilderness, like
Moses and the children of Israel, before the last vestiges of the ASD
Idolatry are snuffed out).
