Most construction lawyers are familiar with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), Engineers Joint Contract Documents Committee (EJCDC) forms of agreements, and the newer ConsensusDOCS forms. The ConsensusDocs forms replace many of the forms previously issued by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). Now completely revised, this invaluable resource offers a topic-by-topic comparison of these forms by providing: An easy-reference guide to how the AIA, ConsensusDOCS and EJCDC forms treat the most significant issues in owner/contractor/subcontractor and owner/design professional agreements Proposed alternative language for situations where the form contract approach may not provide the best solution List comparing the most significant provisions from each of these forms (on the CD-ROM)"

I am off course bias since I co-penned a chapter of this book. Setting that aside, it is a wonderful and informative book written by experts in their field.
