Better for larger companies
If you are a medium to large sized company without an estimator this book is for you. I am a sole proprietor without employees and want to stay that way. In some areas the costing methods for me are inflexible. For example, all the cost books are made up with contractors getting 20, 30, or 40% discount on their paint. I have to pay retail. The program won't allow me to modify the cost sheets for me. However there is a wealth of information in here primarily all on how to cost out a job and add in overhead, profit, and a burden rate for payroll. It is very well written. Just not for the little guy.

By Bob Doran
This book is a fairytale and does not represent the current commercial painting industry.

This book is extremely difficult to understand. Examples used are repeated throughout every page of the book and it doesn't make much sense. I believe the person who wrote the book understands it (I hope) and anyone that owns a company may. If you are a free-lancer, this book is not for you.
