    " I skimmed through the book and got what I wanted. If you are really into this topic, there is lots of detail to review. If you just want some tips (like I did), there are a couple of good sections in the back. "

    " (a library find) Time to conduct our own home energy audit! This book has reinforced my feeling that we need to add some insulation. It's also helped me think about using solar lighting, motion sensor lights, and think about more efficient ways to heat/cool our home. "
