I'd like to know of some other books similar to Francis D. K. Ching's "BUILDING CONSTRUCTION ILLUSTRATED"

One thing I wish for is a book which has a good illustrated section dealing with the formwork and pouring of the concrete foundation.
Also, although I know that the book I mentioned above is a classic masterwork, I find the skinny strange 30-degree isometric pencil drawings to be maddening. I love the black and white and the line art, but I wish for another book which is very much like it, but with better and more readable illustrations.
