Customer Comments:
2/9/10 - Jeff,
Many thanks to you for putting this book together as it helped me tremendously in reducing the radon in my home. Using your techniques described in the book, I was able to reduce the radon readings in my basement from a range of 18-25 picocuries to .9 to 1.3! I did it all myself. It would have not been possible without your book.
Best Regards,

3/18/10 - Jeff,
The book I bought from you, Protecting Your Home From Radon , is worth every penny I paid for it.  Between the book and your website, somebody who understands basic construction methods and has experience with tools,  should be able to design and install a safe and effective system.   And the book appropriately instills a bit of fear and apprehension in the minds of people who really aren't skilled enough to tackle this kind of a technical challenge.

I've been a professional journalist and editor for more than 40 years.  If, after I finish my radon mitigation project, I see some ways the book can be improved for future editions, I'll send my suggested edits to you.
