Short and Sweet, Thorough

Some of these process points I have or would have considered, many I wasn’t even aware about. But the main takeaway is that an architect - ie. a knowing and skilled project manager specializing in buildings - is essential unless your expectation is to fulfill all of their necessary functions instead yourself. To me the choice is obvious, but either way this book was a great overview, and saved me hours of googling.

PIECE OF JUNK!

please don't waste your time on this book-- it took about 30 minutes for the guy to read it to me-- it was terrible and very basic.

Informative

This was well written with clear information, but I feel for free you could Google this information.

Very helpful, right level of detail for non-pros

Learned so much from the book. For non-professionals, it is a great listen. Highly recommend.
