Each year I read at least 52 real estate books. Most are pretty good and a few are awful. Today is the time to honor the 10 best real estate books of 1998. In no particular order "Home Remodeling for Dummies" by Morris and James Carey (IDG Books, Foster City, CA) $19.99, 381 pages. These professional home remodelers created the best book about renovations by making the complicated easy to understand. Their wise advice covers virtually all aspects of home improvements.

If you're thinking of remodeling your home, or perhaps selling it and buying a home that better meets your needs, read this book first. Even if you have just a minor project in mind, such as new windows, this book will save you much aggravation...On my scale of one to 10, this outstanding new book rates an off-the-chart 12.
