The book provided me knowledge and guidance, and ultimately helped me gain the confidence and courage to take on this renovation as the General Contractor and Project Manager, which is incredibly helpful when you are managing to a budget.
I am only partially through the project, but I am gaining confidence every day and I am already saving money as a result"

There are a lot of typos and grammatical errors within, that a simple MS Word check would have picked up. It's written like a blog -- not very well organized as a book should be. Tried to straddle new construction with remodeling with limited success.
The content was worth $5, but was not professionally done.
