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 loved your new 30 Ways book, Bill, and would like to order 10 more copies for my people. I think you hit the nail right on the head with this book.
I just finished reading Bill's 30 Ways book and found it interesting and beneficial. Very common sense and easy read.
