You will not find a book with as much information and practical application for construction contracting. I have worked with construction firms since 1994, traveling the continental United States (and still do). As you know, people do things differently in all regions of the country. There is no one way to manage your business. Having more than one approach makes a contractor flexible and profitable. We have captured and interpreted all these practices and present them in this book.
