The Business of Building

Some of what the book contains is idealistic, as I believe that life and by extension business should be an ongoing effort to improve and expand. Some of what it says will be obvious one day, but when starting out simple things are often not obvious at all. Some of it is my opinion, with all the shortcomings they contain, and there are ideas that contradict each other because there is no one right way to run a job, hire an employee, or establish and manage a business. And yet, The Elements of Building gets to the heart of the business and addresses much of what will be encountered along the way.
