    In the author's introduction to the first edition of this book, published in 1992, he states that the book's main purpose is “. . .to assist the reader in the identification of potentially unstable rock foundations, to demonstrate design methods appropriate for a wide range of geological conditions and foundation types, and to describe rock construction methods.” The intended reader, he says, is the design professional in geotechnical engineering. In his introduction to the second edition, the author states that design and construction practices have not changed since the writing of the first edition, hence the reason for writing the second edition is to include updated technical material and to “. . .add information on new projects where valuable experience on rock foundations has been documented.” The coverage in the second edition fulfills the author's stated intentions.
