Summary "The idea from this book came from several people who had been unfortunate enough to hear me speak at one of the lectures I used to give up and down England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. I have written a great many books on construction industry topics (70 at the last count): books about the popular forms of contract, about the kinds of letters architects and contractors might write, about architectural, practical and legal matters. My aim was to make most of the books as simple as possible and some people have been kind enough to say that my books are relatively easy and helpful, if not actually enjoyable, to read. It is easy to make a complex subject even more complicated and we all see this every day. The trick is to make a complex subject simple. This takes time but it is rewarding"-- Provided by publisher
