This book is excellent. My wife bought me this book as part of the super deal with the "Lost Art of Steam Heating" and "A pocketful of Steam Problems (with Solutions). These books have been invaluable to me as a homeowner and have given me the confidence and knowledge to tackle a lot of our steam problems ourselves. I encourage anyone with a steam heating system to read these books before contacting your local contractor. It will provide you with the right information to make the right decisions and avoid throwing money at a situation that may have an easy solution (i.e. venting, insulation etc). We no longer have cold rooms in our house and our daughters are no longer suffer in cold bedrooms; what a difference to last season. And as an added bonus we have seen a 40% savings in our heating bill. --HeatingHelp.com customer
