When you\'ve read every word that Dan Holohan has written over the past 30 years, you\'ve got to wonder, "What new things can be in this book?" I hesitated to plunk down the $30. But Dan\'s a good guy and his writing is always amusing, interesting and informative. So I figured even if I can get two out of three, it\'s worth the price.
Of course one new morsel of information would pay for the book many times over.
I wasn\'t disappointed. First of all, "Green" refers to the money saved as well as the fuel saved by operating an efficient system.
This is Dan\'s first book written in the age of the Internet, and it contains all sorts of collaborative knowledge gleaned from "The Wall" by some of the best in the field of steam heating. Holohan was one of the Internet\'s pioneers, and this new publication so clearly illustrates the benefits that Internet technology brings to knowledge.
The apple doesn\'t fall far from the tree, and the book\'s designer, Erin Holohan Haskell, that little lass we read of over a score an a half years, has produced the most attractive book in Dan\'s series. It still says Holohan all over it. Amusing, entertaining, light hearted and informative.
This is one book even the most experienced steam heating engineer will be glad he bought.
Dan has done a great job with this book. Greening Steam takes you easily though each part of a steam system and shows you how each should operate, what can go wrong, and how to get the system back to the state of efficiency and comfort that the original installers intended. It is a great aid to both home owners and heating professionals.
How terrific is this book?
I'm a guy who grew up in Florida and moved back to Chicago. If it isn't air conditioning or waving palm fronds over a block of ice, I've never heard of it.
The previously abstruse concepts of steam heat now make perfect sense. I'm turning pages faster than a John Grisham novel.
Thank you for giving the Dead Men such a clear, understandable, and fascinating voice. And for giving us such a pleasurable -- and valuable -- read.
