Has anyone used this textbook for their studies? If so, what's your opinion on its usefulness as compared with the Amrhein book?

Thanks.

Well, I bit the bullet and purchased the 2009 Design of Reinforced Masonry Structures book. I believe it is superior to the Amrhein book as it is clear and to the point, organized well, and gives plenty of useful exam-problem illustrations for high-seismic prone problems. It can be purchased on the following LINK:

I use the the Concrete Association of California and Nevada and highly recommend it. It came in very handy when taking the SE
