Revit Essentials and Revit Handbook

Revit book shelves are getting filled out these days. Time to plan for room for two more books.

Book One is Revit Essentials which will be published by Wiley/Sybex and authored by the same team that brought you the most recent Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture, Phil Read, Eddy Krygiel, James Vandezande and a number of other special contributors.

That isn't the final cover, just a placeholder until they've selected final artwork etc. For more information on this book be sure to keep an eye on the blog Arch | Tech. There is a Facebook page for Mastering but I'm not aware of one for Essentials yet.

Book Two is called The Revit Handbook.

It too is not yet ready but underway and is intended to be distributed as an eBook. Author Adam Simmons has a web site up for the book the web site Simple Design Sense has a blog page that mentions the book too. You can CLICK THIS to add your name to their mailing list to be notified when it is ready.
