A Guide to Facilities Planning by Robert W. James, Paul A. Alcorn

For courses in Plant and Facilities planning. This is an introductory text, designed to serve a twofold purpose. First, it provides an excellent overview of the content of facilities planning. Offering the student an opportunity to get a general grounding in the field through readings, detailed examples, and a case study designed to offer the practical experience of going through the planning process. Additionally, it functions as a handbook for those embarking on the facilities planning and design process for the first time. It presents a logical progression of steps from conception to the facility idea to execution of the rough-cut sketches that would be given to construction firms for use in developing the facility.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
