About the Author:

Linda Mason Hunter has held numerous editorial positions at newspapers and magazines, including the Des Moines Register, Meredith Corp., and Rondale Press.She writes and styles photographs for several national magazines, and has authored many books on housing and design, the most recent being Southwest Style: A Home-Lover?s Guide To Architecture and Design (published by Northland Publishing, fall 2000).She is the founder of Healthy Home Designs and serves on the advisory board of www.greenhome.com. Hunter lives in Des Moines, Iowa in an old Homestead House, with her husband, Robert, and Great Dane, Lucille. Located on a quiet, tree-lined boulevard, it is a healthy house with plenty of sunshine and fresh air, hardwood floors, and plaster walls.

From Publishers Weekly:

Here one finds a blend of old-fashioned advice ("Remove onion odors from your hand by rubbing with the cut end of a celery stalk") with multitudinous warnings about pollutants and dangers lurking in our homes. Radon ("an odorless, colorless, radioactive gas"), formaldehyde-infused building materials, petroleum-based products and carbon monoxide-releasing wood fires are among the risks addressed. Hunter, a former editor of Better Homes and Gardens Remodeling Ideas magazine, presents her ideas in a clear and accessible manner, but like many others who suggest there is cause for alarm about our dwellings, she is unscientific. Her anecdotes, for example, greatly fortify her admonitions, but often no numbers are given to substantiate how many people have experienced various problems, or whether the preponderance of evidence would suggest these problems pose a serious danger for the rest of us. Moreover, all perils are seemingly presented with the same sense of importance, rather than ranked in a hierarchy.
