Eddy Krygiel is a registered architect, a LEED Accredited Professional, and an Autodesk Authorized Author at BNIM Architects. He has been using Revit since version 5.1 to complete projects ranging from single-family residences to office buildings as large as 1.12 million square feet. Eddy is responsible for implementing BIM at his firm and consults for other architecture and contracting firms looking to implement BIM. For the last three years, he has been teaching Revit to practicing architects and architectural students in the Kansas City area and has lectured around the nation on the use of BIM in the construction industry. Eddy also coauthored a paper on sustainability and BIM that was presented at the 2006 AIA Technology in Architectural Practice conference.
Broken into Seven Parts:
Part I begins with a hands-on look at the Revit interface before introducing standards and documentation.
Part II explores preliminary design concerns, including massing the building, working with rooms and areas, and leveraging legacy data.
Part III has readers working with modeling components and explains host elements as well as system and component families.
Part IV delves into product documentation, including schedules, annotation, and details.
Part V looks at design options, project phases and site planning, while Part VI discusses collaboration and worksets.
Part VII explains how to manage content and includes advanced information on family editor concepts as well as a detailed testing and troubleshooting section.
The innovative Appendices will detail important Revit tools and commands so that readers can quickly learn how a tool or command is used. book’s exercises, sample families, other useful resources, and a trial version of the Revit software.
The accompanying CD features all the tutorial files necessary to complete the book’s exercises, sample families, other useful resources, and a trial version of the Revit software.

In the second paragraph, "Window selection," the last sentence reverses "left-to-right" and "right-to-left."
The sentence should read: "A left-to-right drag selects only elements completely within the election window; a right-to-left drag selects anything within or intersecting the selection window."
