What people say about it...

Reading how to win when dealing with builders, really gave me invaluable knowledge. Being a single parent means I am having to take the word of people and companies I don't know when I am wanting work done within my home. I now have the knowledge and confidence to ask them questions and understand what the answers should be. This has also made sure I am not fleeced by any would - be conman. Even the smallest of things, such as when I prepared my son's bedroom to be decorated, I went out and bought everything I needed - using correct terminology, buying things I needed as opposed to things that I don't really need. A really enjoyable read. I loved picturing the examples given and the antics of Bruiser Bruce and the author. It made me want to continue reading as I feel I gained a great amount of knowledge along with laughter and humour. A fantastic insight into what could happen if you don't do your homework. ~ Tracey Morewood, West Yorkshire.
