4.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious book about real life contractor situations 5 May 2013
By Joanna Schumacher - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fun, easy read book that had us rolling in stitches on some of the anecdotes related by Frank. Anyone who has hired carpentry and/or other contractors, or perhaps worked in the trades will especially appreciate the book. We are hoping to see a sequel come out soon!

This book does a great job of summarizing some hilarious, real-life stories about the trades. In this business, there are many funny stories that go untold. Frank does a wonderful job re-telling the details of the activities on the jobsite. We look forward to a second book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and Humorous Read 30 Nov 2012
By Betty - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Tales from the Trades will appeal to professionals and lay people alike. It was easy to relate to many of the tales told based on my own personal experiences as a homeowner dealing with some of the tradesmen portrayed. I feel this book provides a humorous incite to some of the mishaps that occur during the course of building construction. I'm hoping that there will be a sequel to this entertaining book!
