As one Amazon reviewer wrote: "You might think a book on home inspections would be boring, but Lisa made this a fun read. I liked the part on Crawlspace Surprises. The book is actually a grouping of many short articles from Lisa's newspaper column - each article is about 1-2 pages. The table of contents and index will help you find what you want so you can quickly find articles about each topic."
