What is the best masonry design handbook to get in the US.  I have a good Canadian book but, since I'm working in Wisconsin now, the metric design aids are not very useful to me.  Suggestions???

RE: Masonry Design

Two books are referenced a lot here in the US:

"Reinforced Masonry Engineering Handbook", Fifth Edition, James E. Amrhein, published by the Masonry Institute of America, Los Angeles, CA.

"Masonry Designers Guide", ACI International,  www.aci-int.org

The Amrhein book is very helpful but the 5th edition had lots of errors in the sample calculations.
