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.
About the Author:
JOHN BOWER has been involved with healthy house construction since 1984. His other books include Healthy House Building for the New Millennium, The Healthy House Answer Book, and Understanding Ventilation. He has also written scores of magazine articles and given dozens of presentations at builders’ conferences throughout North America. John is the recipient of a Professional Achievement Award from Professional Builder magazine, which named him one of “60 Influential People, Products, and Events” in the home building industry. He serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of Indoor Environment Connections and was listed as one of the “Indoor Environment Power 50,” a Who’s Who in the Indoor Environment Industry, by Indoor Environment Review.
