'By referencing man hours rather than monetary value, the book is universally applicable and will be of extended long-term relevance. It will assist technical superintendents in compiling repair specifications with a pricing strategy, so they can build up costings for their planned repair periods...The author provides estimates for all situations which may arise, enabling the repair superintendent to anticipate costs and therefore to prepare an accurate repair specification well in advance to be issued to the repairer.'
