A wonderful piece of filmmaking set to a beautiful score. D.H. Lawrence will certainly warrant some reading on my part. Rupert Evans looks a lot like a young Brad Pitt here. I believe this is one of those rare movies that will continue to rise in my esteem the more I see it and think of it.
I wish “Remodel Success” had been published 20 years ago.I would have saved thousands of dollars and gut-wrenching stress on my first home remodel by using Monica D. Higgins’ unique 3-part system for completing your project on time and on budget.I would have spent more time planning instead of doing, including:• Developing my priority list by answering the questions in Chapter 1, “Get Clear on What You Want.”• Identified my remodeling personality by taking the “Find Your Remodeling Personality” quiz.• Assembled a remodeling team using her insights in Chapter 4, “Organizing Your Human Capital.”• Put together a realistic budget, including a cushion for cost overruns.• Most important of all, avoided the contractor-from-hell by reading Chapter 9, “Choosing a Contractor.” The contractor screening questions in this chapter alone are worth the price of the book.“Remodel Success” breaks technical jargon to down to bite size pieces that are easy to understand, demystifying jargon like “zoning” and “covenants”, and explaining the 3 different types of bids. Each chapter builds on the last, so the homeowner feels in control of the process from beginning to end. Instead of overreacting to change orders and unforeseen cirtances, you make informed decisions based on your priorities and your do I know? Because I used Monica D. Higgins’ system on my next remodel and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Follow the advice in this book, and your remodel will be a success too!Note: I received an advance review copy of the book, but I have purchased it also.
This is an amazing book for anyone considering remodeling their home. The author takes you through a step by step process before you actually contact a designer or contractor. Remodel Sucess you how to evaluate project, planning smart and taking into consideration the best avenue to take when making a decision before you start. If I had this book prior to my remodel, I could have saved a great deal of money by obtaining bids, scrutinizing the actual bid and if it worked well for my budget. The author introduces terms like Change Orders. I had to learn the word the hard way. I am giving this book as gifts to family and friends so that their remodeling process goes a lot smoother than mine and cost a lot less in time, effort and dollars.. I would definately recommend this book.
Outstanding book in the presentation of what is really authentic success. Our definition and understanding of what success really means defines our journey. While setting and achieving goals is important, success is not at the end of the road, or necessarily tied to a net worth or title. Authentic success is about what really gives our lives meaning day in day out.
Another brilliant book by one of my favourite teachers and authors. Authentic Success is a must read for anyone who really wants to understand what true authentic success is and how to access it!! All you have to do is give yourself permission and Robert guides the way.
Another wonderful book by Robert ven that I had already read Happiness NOW!, a lot of his ideas were already familiar to me. But these ideas are so important that they bear repeating, and so I don't think that reading this along with other works by Holden is in any way a waste of time. In fact, I think I got more out of this one because I had read it already, because his approach to success is very much based on his ideas about happiness. Basically, happy people are more naturally successful.While Happiness NOW! was more philosophical in nature, this one has a more practical outlook. It's filled with exercises and tips on how to find what success really means to you, and then taking action. It forces you to look at your fears and at your deeply conditioned thoughts and beliefs about success and all its related elements.A book, by itself, will never change your life, just like money by itself cannot make you happy. So unless you're willing to sit down with yourself and do the work, you probably won't reap all the benefits that this book can is book was well-structured, with tons of examples from a variety of sources like clients, seminars and other writers (including other psychologists, novelists, poets and philosophers). But, most of all, it's Holden's own deep belief in what he preaches that convinces me. You can feel his commitment to his subject through every word, and he doesn't seem like the hypocritical "do as I say, not as I do" chapter that especially touched me was the one about Money Sickness. I was on the edge of tears throughout. But if you want to know what he says about it... you'll have to read the book. I think that it should be read with an open mind and a desire to become a better person.
I am only 3 chapters in and it is life-changing! My husband began reading it when I wasn’t reading it and I finally had to buy a second copy for him. It is making me re-think a lot about life, priorities and to do lists. Like insaid, I am only 3 chapters in and felt compelled to write a review. I can’t wait to read the rest.
Excellent. I reread Robert Holden's books and discover fresh insights. He is funny and profound. He gives practical exercises that the reader can use to discover new ways of thinking and viewing life. I highly recommend this book and his others, for people who want deeper answers to finding meaning and joy in life.
Sure, most people can figure out how to bake a cake, but a recipe would be a lot better than multiple attempts, with trips to the store, wasted time, wasted money and frustrations until you finally figured it out. Remodel Success is that recipe book for taking that plunge into home remodeling and not having to figure out the learning curve and trials from scratch. Since 8th grade I've heard my wood teacher's voice in my head say, 'measure twice, cut once.' Monica says or alludes to this in her book by illuminating well thought out and experienced steps to consider as you set your plan. Experienced folks might wave off one or two as obvious, but no one will question the completeness and appropriateness for everyone. I was fortunate to receive an advance copy for review to learn from Ms. Higgins' Real Estate and Remodeling experience. I recommend and will keep my recipe book for reference for any home projects.
Wow. Monica has itemized everything you need to consider in preparing for a substantial remodel. This is not a typical to-do guide. This is a very granular synopsis covering everything from early planning to signing off on final construction. It begins with critical questions you need to ask yourself in order to properly plan your remodel before you start your project - saving you thousands of dollars in time and money. She also covers what to look for when hiring your contractor from group interviewing techniques to understanding insurance and bonding, typical pitfalls, and what to look for in your vendor contracts. If you plan to manage your remodel yourself, read this first. Once you do, you’ll know all the areas you need to keep on top of for a successful remodel - and you’ll probably want to hire Monica to manage it for you.
I have only remodeled one small condo kitchen once. It was the hardest and most stressful project of my adult life. No kidding. As I'm getting ready to remodel a large house kitchen, I am happy and relieved I ran into this book. I now feel more confident in my ability to complete the project right, on time, and on model Success is a very easy read filled with helpful tips, nicely organized. It's a must-read for anyone thinking of remodeling a full home or a special room out there.
After needing to remodel the whole house after a flood, we did not know where to start. I needed a book to at least get me started and understand what steps to take and how to find the best deals. This was the perfect book. Everything was explained in language I could understand. Since reading this book, our rebuilding has been very successful. I highly recommend this book.
I'm a general contractor and I'll be recommending this book to my med with the information in this book, a homeowner will be able to avoid the many pitfalls of remodeling and be able to go through the process smoothly and e construction process can be intimidating and complex. The contractor and homeowner should work as a team to ensure is book will give the homeowner the tools necessary to choose the right contractor and to be a valuable team member in the remodeling process.
Even small tasks to spruce up your home can require planning in order to achieve the success you desire. Remodeling your home normally requires the help of professionals, and most people find themselves entering a realm they have never walked in before. Any miscommunication or mistake is bound to cost the homeowner more money, as well as a long-lasting memory of a bad experience. This is exactly what Monica D. Higgins is trying to prevent with her book “Remodel Success: Home Remodeling Done Right, On Time, and On Budget.”Right from the start, Ms. Higgins advises us to plan, and pay close attention to the small stuff. Homeowners need to know exactly what they want, right down to the types of materials, finish, and fancy adornments. Other chapters provide necessary definitions and aid with the interview process (general contractors, sub-contractors, etc.). Money is a definite topic, and budgeting, bidding, and payment schedules are also given their fair share of time. Ms. Higgins also discusses what happens when a project is concluded, and what to do if you are not satisfied (both during or at the project’s end).Very helpful are the checklists. The author explains that small items missed in the planning stage can turn into overruns costing hundreds or thousands of dollars, or that clauses not included in the written contracts could cause miscommunications and lead to change orders and more overruns. Meetings with those who will participate in the project are not forgotten, and sample agendas are provided. In fact, every type of list and form that one could think of are part of this book.I have contracted to have one home built from scratch, and also had some remodeling done. While I got out relatively unscathed, I shudder to think what may have happened if the issues that arose could not have been worked out as amicably as they were. This book will definitely be on the top of my desk the next time I face a new build or a remodel. Five thanks to NetGalley and Schiffer Publishing for an advance copy of this book.
The author, who I have known for years, kindly provided a review copy of the book for my consideration.

Her methods incorporate proven project management techniques that balance time, money, and objectives. And she includes planning tasks, checklists, helpful tips, and examples that cover many of the decisions and choices that homeowners face during these projects.
I love Remodel Success. I have seen so many people go over budget or even worse, task are left uncompleted because home owners really don't know how to convey their vision clearly to contractors whilst having an understanding of exactly what's involved when making changes to ones home. Monica gives simple tips that I believe will help the homeowner & the contractor have a better working relationship while staying within the clients budget.I was given this book to review & I have happily reccomened it to others. Excellent resource !
