I really like this Gross Margin book  – you really hit on “back to basics” – which is just what LBM companies have to do in these challenging times.

When I started reading I thought you would reveal 26 great new ways to raise margin with some new easy, slick ways to raise GP– in fact you restated 26 ways that I was already aware of or have heard before (albeit a long time ago) – I think your timing with this book is just right – it reminds managers of these well proven methods have to be re-visited as there is no magic answers or quick fix to raising margin other than a conscious effort to constantly review and maintain.

I think all of my branch managers will benefit from reading this book – and with your permission will be referring to it during our next Keith Brown Manager scheduled in January (margin being one of the main topics).

 I would like to order 15 copies at your special discounted price of $25.95 each

I just finished reading Bill's 30 Ways book and found it interesting and beneficial.  Very common sense and easy read.
