If only there were a zero star rating...
Don't expect to gain much by purchasing or reading this book. This is an excel workbook--not an estimating textbook. There is no explanation of how to do quantity takeoffs. Youtube videos are much more helpful than this book. Your money would go much further if you were to donate it to a charity. Don't waste your money buying this book!

Full of Errors
After spending an hour I had to take a break half way through Chapter 3 and give a review. There are so many references (so far) to wrong cells for example; Pg 17 refers to a "constant in a formula", the book has "B1 "is the subtotal cost", the correct cell is B2.
The one star goes for the book giving good ideas (that can be improved upon) which can be used for building estimating work sheets. The four blank stars go to the editor or lack thereof.
IF the typo's are corrected and the book is truly edited then this could be a good resource. SAVE YOUR MONEY
