Pricing for the Green Industry

For those who have read it, is this book worth spending $120?

Havent read It. That being said...

Probably can find all of it on the forums or google for free and can buy a simple business finance book for cheaper that can help cover some of the technical stuff.

Yes, it's worth it.

VERY little change from the second edition. Ross' book was the basis for our chart of accounts, budgeting, and estimating system.

go for it.

It is worth every penny. Basically a step by step guide to creating overhead recovery systems, then a budget, then creating a pricing & estimating system and bundling it together, and it's catered directly toward the green industry which helps tremendously as compared to a general finance book that hasn't a clue about our industry.

When you have systems, you have control.

I've got the third edition and am about a .25 of the way through it. Lots of good info but hard to soak in.

I was the same way. It's basically like a college textbook. I've been rereading it as I go with creating my 2014 budget.
