"Cutting Corners" is when part of a process is removed while attempting to achieve the original result. Usually it is done to save time, effort or money, but often it results in sacrificing quality or safety. November 22, 2008 was ending as a frustrating, unproductive renovation Saturday, but then a small unsafe decision had a dramatic impact. In order to save time Duane used the wrong tool and used it incorrectly, placing him on the receiving end of a table saw kickback. The results were devastating! In a split second his right hand was crushed; his middle finger and thumb severed and laid in the palm of his hand and his pointer and ring fingers, amputated. Stop Cutting Corners uncovers a sobering and emotional journey to healing and prevention. Duane conveys the anger, pain, victimization and loss, but leaves the reader with forgiveness, perspective, perseverance, and hope. The book provides a serious reflection of the risks people willingly take when they decide to cut corners.*Preview shows a sample of the book
