Benedicto Munthali from Malawi: Commenting on my book, "Mineral Admixtures in Cement and Concrete"

I got your book on 8 Oct 2012. A very powerful and great book. Good work. I am doing a project for using boiler fly ash for replacement in concrete in Malawi. This is for my Advance Concrete Technology advanced diploma with ICT UK In Malawi, we do not have coal power stations but only conventional boilers used in manufacturing and processing industries. I am investigating this fly ash, any pointers? 
Have a great day
