    My review of this work is rather shameless, as I am the author of the book I wrote this book because many books on residential construction take a topical approach rather than an integrated approach Rather than having a chapter on budgeting, scheduling, contracting, etc., I wrote chapters centered on how one moves through the actual work of the project The five main chapters of the book are centered around the project lifecycle initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing The r My review of this work is rather shameless, as I am the author of the book I wrote this book because many books on residential construction take a topical approach rather than an integrated approach Rather than having a chapter on budgeting, scheduling, contracting, etc., I wrote chapters centered on how one moves through the actual work of the project The five main chapters of the book are centered around the project lifecycle initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing The reader will learn how all the parts of the project integrate together to perform the actual work of the project I hope you enjoy the book
