Great book for the professional. Don't give this one to your clients or try to read it late at night. Does cover the water front though. Good reference volume

Little book, really condensed, and great for having all the basics at hand. Good news is it is connected to a website where you can get CEUs online taking an examination on this or other books called naceonline.
