About The Streetwise Subbie 4th Edition

Originally published in 1996 “The Streetwise Subbie” has earned a positive reputation for being a down-to-earth guide to survival in the contracts jungle and essential reading for Specialist and Trade Contractors, of every size and specialisation.

Its originator Jack Russell was well known for his ‘contractual terrier’ column in Electrical Times and thousands of subbies have already benefited from the Streetwise Subbie approach to avoiding contractual disasters with the clarity of thought and advice the book provides.

I am very proud of the fact that I was commissioned to bring it bang up to date and it now covers the revisions to the Construction Act and the developments in adjudication.

The book draws on not one but two lifetimes in the industry.

Firstly, that of its original author, and now I have added my 20 years’ experience as a Specialist Contractor, and then 28 years in professional practice as an established Contractual Consultant advising Specialist and Trade Contractors.

It is a book which I am sure will be of enormous benefit to you and your team and the publishers Routledge Taylor and Francis, have teamed up with ReadCube
