Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For remodelers on a budget, this well-conceived and dutifully organized vade mecum presents a concise case in seven parts (from ``The Basics'' to ``Hiring Professionals'') comprising 30 compact but fact-filled and generously illustrated chapters. Discussions include many useful hints going far beyond the self-evident. Throughout the work, safety concerns receive prominent treatment, as do matters of planning, design, quality, and price. One is even treated to a two-paragraph history of the bidet, likely to be quite informative to most Americans! This title is recommended for do-it-yourself and hire-it-done home project collections alike.-- Jonathan D. Lauer, Messiah Coll., Grantham, Pa.
Booknews
A sensible guide to contracting or do-it-yourself work on real bathrooms--not the palatial show off prodigalities of the slick magazines. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
