Now fully revised, the third edition of this renowned book by Ralph Goss has been made even more valuable with the addition of many new illustrations, and takes into account not only traditional cut roof construction but also modern trussed rafter roof assembly methods. Revised by C.N. Mindham, author of Roof Construction and Loft Conversion, this new edition contains many new drawings of constructional details for which his own book is much acclaimed. Information is now given on wall plate and gable end strapping, wind bracing, truss clips and other roofing metalwork, as well as on the modern tools and instruments necessary to carry out the construction work. Proven as a book for professionals, the book is now equally suitable for the keen DIY enthusiast as well as the professional. All information is given in both metric and imperial units.

"Level One" is a frightening fictional future possibility. "Level One" examines the potential self-destruction of taking matters into your own hands in times of war and the corruption of power. "Level One" questions presuppositions of anarchy and the burden of command. What happens when the associated responsibilities of a commander are eclipsed by personal gain and deep-rooted vendetta psychology? How does one measure the greater good geopolitically in order to make the correct decisions? Unlike Jack Denali's last book, "Novus Ordo Seclorum," which uncovered the essence of personal relationships; "Level One" digs deep into group behavioral psychology. The protagonist, a former sniper frustrated by being leashed by the government and unable to stop terrorists without cutting reams of red tape, finds that with a little cash and the cooperation of other like minded soldiers, who are willing to aid his cause and thereby circumvent any bureaucracy, that in effect they can have an impact on global terrorism. As he recycles war profits gained from the investment of his inheritance, he soon has his own army, his own command. "Level One" magnifies the infrastructure of empire building in an action adventure glimpse of the potential future of our world.
