This is not reading for the fun of it...it's a book of specific facts and techniques laid out in a clear and understandable manner. If you want to build or renovate a house that will save you money on heating and cooling, this is invaluable. You can refer to the book as you build/renovate.

This is the best building guide I've ever read. It is truly a scientific systems approach, and the author breaks everything down into understandable terminology.
I can't stress the necessity of this book enough. If you're building, buying, or contracting any house related work out, having this information will ensure the work is done right. It's not rocket science, but it's science that most people don't know.
