Well, I am a civil engineering on the heavy construction business. I bought this book in order to obtain some insigths of the construction business, You know: tips about contractors, methods, ways of doing some comercial offers and proposals. The book is all about remodeling. Perhaps the title should be: "How to succeed with your own REMODELING and SMALL construction business". If you are after this, that's the book.

As an individual seeking to start my own constuction business, this book has provided the insight I need not only to decide whether to 'take the plunge' but also provides most, if not all, of the information I need to set up my own constuction business. This book covers virtually everything about the mechanics of setting up a remodeling business. It is an indespensible 'how-to' manual that uncovers the up-front ingredients necessary to make it all happen. If you're looking to make a decision about whether to start your own business and how to go about doing it, this book is for you. It sets the table for the reader to make it happen. Very highly recommended.

This book seemed a bit hokey, but had a lot of sound advice and strategies for success. I started a construction company several years ago, and I have definitely implemented concepts from this book into my business which have contributed to our success. Easy read that is absolutely worth the time and the money.
