This book is helpful in that it really explains the business end of the construction industry. Though this won't tell you how to build a house or a hotel... it will tell you the logistics of bidding, tracking expenses, labor costs, time sheets, draws, and all kinds of other things the those not familiar with the industry might have problems with the first go round. It helps you to figure out all of the little things that you might forget when trying to determine "if I do the job for X will I make any money?" The book is quite colorful and has excellent graphs, drawings and pictures to really bring to light what they are explaining to you.
If you are considering either starting a construction company, or trying to move up in one... I highly recommend this book.

I've found this book is helping me already and I'm only half way through it.
I'm pretty lucky to have found this book. If you are like me and struggling to keep your head above water this will teach you what needs to be done to get your business running efficiently, less loses on underquoting as your pricing of jobs becomes more accurate due to historcal records you use from previous jobs , also giving you more free time away from being snowed under with the amount of time working out quotations.
Oh, and a stack more information that is required knowledge.
Highly recommend this book....but its up to you to study it and put the hard effort into following what he has recommended to do !.
Ps, like alot of other reviewers have quotated...."wish I had this book years ago."
