A Must Read for the Engineering and Construction World

I get asked all the time "What construction specific business books are out there? Are there any you recommend?"

I can without a doubt say "Level Headed" by J. Doug Pruitt and Richard Condit. This is a must read for Engineering and Construction Industry folks.

This is a book I couldn't put down. The book details the turnaround of Sundt Construction, a 125 year old company. The authors do not pull punches. They give intimate details of the tough situations the company faced before, during, and following their turnaround. This book hits on culture, systems, continuous improvement, and facing tough decisions. Even if you aren't in the business, I would urge you to read it. You will not be disappointed.
