    "IN DEFENSE of the BIG DIG" A very insightful and revealing dissertation of the primordial divide between project engineering design and execution from an author with esoteric perspectives derived from his involvement, industry experience and training. Very bold and brutally frank expose on the political and policy considerations, outside public purview, that drive the implementation of all public sector projects. A resourceful case study and a must-read for all students and practitioners whose project portfolios will, invariably, include public sector commissions; and for the curious and discerning public.
