Tim-<p>You have my attention. I just wonder how he can come up with numbers that are accurate when there are so many variables, especially for cleanups.&lt;p&gt;I can judge the time needed for most tasks, but cleanups are difficult for most of us from the feedback I've read.&lt;p&gt;John

John,<p>You really should read the book. he gives avg times for blowing beds with different equipment, hand-raking, hauling etc. I too was surprised at how close to his figures my actual work time came to. All it takes is one job that you didnt underbid to pay for the book and then some.<p>Bill

Phil Nilsson will take back any book, and give a full refund, if for any reason you are not happy with it. Not much of a risk from where Im sitting.<p>Bill

Retro,<p>A friend of mine has one he doesn't use, send me you address and I'll send it to you.<p>He will want it back, but it will give you a chance to see it without parting with money. Maybe we should start a book exchange, don't know how it would work...but I feel sure it is possible.

i will second the book exchange idea. I have several service manuals which I no longer use, plus a couple of Phils books which were given to me which I no longer have a use for. Also a few lawn co. books for beginners I bought when I started out.<p>When I get time Ill round em up and post the titles.<p>Actually, Ill start a new discussion to involve everybody.<p>Bill<br>

The was no reference to whether there is a website for the book or where to order a copy of the books by PHIL NILSSON. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
