James O. Pennock has compiled 45 years of personal experience into this how-to guide. Focusing on the position of "lead in charge," this book is an indispensable resource for anyone, new or seasoned veteran, whose job it is to lead the piping engineering and design of a project.

The "lead" person is responsible for the successful execution of all piping engineering and design for a project, technical and non-technical aspects alike. The author defines the roles and responsibilities a lead will face and the differences found in various project types.
