I was excited when I first purchased this book. I had seen the reviews and thought this would be a great investment. When the book arrived I gave it a quick review and was quite sure I made the right decision. The book packs a number of suppression systems into a single resource and it appeared to be well thought out and I was excited to start using it to prepare for my FPE Exam.

My excitement turned to disappointment within a few hours. As I began to read the book and work problems I noted several errors. My calculations were providing different answers than the examples in the book. That is when I grabbed my copies of NFPA 11, 12, 12A and NFPA 2001. I discovered publishing errors in formulas and I had to correct them based on those found in the NFPA standards. I also noted errors with respect to references to illustrations and tables. In many cases what was supposed to be illustrated was simply not there. Instead there was an illustration of something else.

As I continued to read the book, I began to realize that the book was really just a regurgitation of NFPA standards, albeit presented in a more concise and user friendly format. I discovered that nearly all of the illustrations were from NFPA, Ansul or Simplex. There was not much original work here. Heck, even I could "cut and paste" this book together.

Since this Second Edition book is over 8 years old, I was quite sure that I would be able to find the errata somewhere on the internet. I was disappointed to find nothing out there. Most scholarly works maintain an errata. Not for this book. The author maintains a website and has a published resume but no errata is provided there. E-mails to the author have not yielded a favorable response.

If you need somebody to organize things for you, buy this book. If you do, be prepared for the errors. You should keep copies of the NFPA standards handy as well.

This book offers a broad overview of special hazard fire protection systems. I felt that it lacked a bit of depth in some areas; I had to use the Fire Protection Handbook (2 Volume Set),SFPE Handbook of Fire Protection Engineering, and pertinent codes and standards to fill in important gaps. This book seems to be geared more to a technician's level of knowledge rather than an engineer's. However, it is an easy read and clearly shows many step-by-step calculations that are important when designing a non-sprinkler fire protection system.

Needed this book for my Fire Alarm Installation class.
I found it extremely helpful, detailed, and easy to locate information in.
