From the Publisher:

We are pleased to be publishing this greatly expanded, updated third edition of The Healthy House by John Bower. Since the first edition came out back in 1989, this single book has not only expanded the awareness about the problems of common, but unhealthy, building materials and practices, but more importantly, it has offered real solutions in easy-to-understand language with listings of hundreds of safer alternative products. In short, we feel this is one book that is essential for anyone wanting to be a truly informed homeowner or housing (designer, contractor, builder) professional.
