From Booklist
Because New York building contractor Rusk became a student in the Harvard Law School program on negotiation, the world has gained an author uniquely qualified to help would-be home remodelers and builders communicate with professionals in the field. Providing specific guidelines for each phase of a project, Rusk explains the pros and cons of material and construction options for floors, foundations, and walls and discusses value versus cost in easy-to-read style. In fictional "Nightmare Kitchen" and "Dream Kitchen" stories, he applies negotiation principles to realistic settings, keeping us engaged with developing plots. Reading the book may help prevent much of the frustration that has become a routine part of home remodeling, because while most laymen know they need help with construction, many fail to realize that success depends on communication and conflict resolution skills, too. A very good candidate for public library business collections. Mike Tribby --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

New York City contractor John Rusk wanted to know why so many home renovation projects end in dispute, disaster, or disappointment for the owner, architect, and contractor. Calling on William Ury, author of the bestselling negotiation guide Getting to Yes to help him, Rusk discovered the answers--which he now presents in this complete guidebook to successful renovation.
