In this book, the estimation of all three types of depreciation - physical deterioration, functional obsolescence, and external obsolescence - is discussed in detail. Numerous examples are presented with descriptive tables and graphs that break down the analysis and mathematics involved.

Using humor and common sense, the author makes a complicated subject clear, helping even the most skeptical practitioner feel confident using the cost approach in everyday appraisal assignments.
