Books for Specialist Sub-Contractors

Set out below is a selection of books and other materials that have been recommended by your Virtual Team.


Andrew says;

"As an ex-specialist construction subcontractor myself I wanted to write the book because I believe that in the brutal world of construction subcontracting, specialists, of any size and any sector, can benefit enormously from Quality Management and Quality Management Principles and indeed from securing ISO Certification.

One of my main motivations was to dispel the many myths and misconceptions that surround ISO; primarily around it being bureaucratic, expensive, inflexible, and only for bigger companies. 

Click on the book picture above and you will be taken to the BLISS web site where you can order the book, and have it delivered the next day.

You can also find lots of other resources for Specialist Contractors on the BLISS web site.

An Amazing True Story That Gave Us Think And Grow Rich

Napoleon Hill got idea for Think and Grow Rich from Andrew CarnegieOn a stormy night in 1908, a young reporter was invited to see America's first billionaire, Andrew Carnegie.   Napoleon Hill quizzed Carnegie as to how he had achieved such success.

Carnegie was iso mpressed by the earnest young fellow that he suddenly offered him a strange proposition: "Mr. Hill, on your behalf I will use my considerable influence to arrange opportunities for you to personally spend time with 500 of the greatest accomplishers of our time. They will include fellow industrialists, entrepreneurs, inventors, merchants, statesmen, artists, and many others. You will have as much time as you need to interview, learn from and observe them.

Your objective will be to validate the belief success is a matter of an ideology, of universal laws, which can be enumerated, learned and then simply duplicated and used as skills to deliver predictable results, just as you might learn the laws and process of making steel."

You will accomplish this mission by documenting the beliefs and behaviors all these great men and women share in common. No remuneration shall be paid to you by myself. You must support yourself while working on this project.

Your goal will be the publication of a 'success encyclopedia' enumerating the laws. Whatever the financial rewards arise from that are yours. You have just 60 seconds to accept or reject this offer…"

Napoleon Hill said yes, with a second to spare.  And more than a hundred years later more than 20 million people have learned the principles of success because of his decision.
