Submitter: This whole book makes me think, “The ‘90s called. They want their kitchen decor back.” Home improvement books are certainly popular at our library, and Taunton Press is a great publisher, but this book became hopelessly outdated the minute House Hunters became popular on TV and people started demanding granite. To be fair, our library does also have a newer book on countertop installations that includes everything from cement to butcher block to laminate. And unlike this one, that title is in full-color. This book only has a few color pages. Even the page talking about the wide variety of colors available in plastic laminate is printed in black and white!
Holly: The guy on the cover has excellent glasses and mustache, too. He’s probably retired by now.
