    Right now I have a concrete patio in my backyard. This summer I am planning to break up the concrete and put in a new paved patio with a fireplace and built-in grill. If anybody has any suggetions or books I should read please help me out.

    Maybe consider going to a product manufacturer/distributor training seminar. Also, get the manufacturer engineering specs and product catalogs, study them and get some ideas as well. Avoid "how to" books like ortho, most "how to" book authors never built anything in their life, and their instructions are marginal at best.
