The “almost reality” style isso well written and so close to what we could, and should, be doing with our information models,that I was wondering if I’d missed out on some major changes in the industry. At least with thisbook, you’ll be in a strong position to play catch-up. For once a technical business book is worthadding to your night time reading list.”Finith Jernigan also wrote the Axiom award winning, BIG BIM little bim - The PracticalApproach to Building Information Modeling, the first book to demystify the way that newprocesses in the built environment can increase the power of small organizations.
