"! very good discussion of emissions, measurement methods, reference resources, and many of the National and International standards that will become increasingly relevant to the Indoor Environmental field". Robert W. Miller, CIH, Industrial Hygiene Consultant, Argus Environmental "As a microbiologist investigating indoor environmental quality issues, it is important to have knowledge regarding other potential problems that may affect indoor environments beyond biological growth and contamination. Microbiological investigations are often conducted in a forensic manner (i.e., we look for the source of unidentified problems rather than simply monitoring pass/fail levels of a known contaminant), and this book provides strategies for investigation and guidance to set reliable protocols." Sean Abbott, Ph.D., Laboratory Director, Natural Link Mold Lab "I like how honest the writing is, stating the facts of the situations and not jumping to conclusions! we deal with clients who 'smell something funny' all the time. They usually think it is mold since the media has scared them into that but your writings show different aspects" Jessica Bray, Owner/Manager, ServPro of Guadalupe & Gonzales Counties "As a defense attorney handling toxic tort litigation, a working knowledge of sampling protocols and cutting-edge trends is critical.a The ability to evaluate expert opinions and analyze underlying methodology and assumptions is often the difference between winning and losing. This book is useful in my practice and will stay within arms reach as an important reference." Kerry Haliburton, Attorney-at-Law, Naman Howell Smith and Lee
