All business people live the ultimate contradiction: We spend our nights praying for the ability to charge monopoly prices, and we spend our days engaged in the very activity that drives those prices downward--that is, increasing the market supply of our services. The theories and concepts in this book are passed on to you in the hope that your transition from hourly billing to Value Pricing will be easier and less prone to failure.About the Author:
