    Above and Beyond

    Posted by Wayne Kasbey on 18th Jan 2016

    I recently ordered two books, topics were combined cycle power plants and managing construction for power plants. The authors are very well written and keep you wanting to read on. I am in Canada and was not expecting the books to show up for a week or two. Very pleased with only a few days delivery.
