"Working with Jeff May has completely changed my attitude toward the impact of the indoor world on human illness. His work has allowed us to focus on the true sources of allergic disease—the microscopic organisms that the immune system must deal with every second we spend indoors. His advice profoundly benefits families with environmental sensitivity, including those with immunologic conditions beyond allergy and asthma."

"Much as physicians cure sick persons, Mr. May and other indoor air quality professionals 'cure' sick homes and buildings. Unless the cause of illnesses arising from indoor allergens or other pollutants is effectively addressed, medical treatments may be extended unnecessarily or may even be ineffective... This book will be informative for those who think their health problems may be caused by their homes. Such problems can be frustrating to affected persons and to their health care providers, who are often unaware that the quality of indoor environments is connected with health and disease."

"I have had the opportunity to work with Jeff and he is the 'real thing.' He has helped many of my patients. After reading My House is Killing Me!, I am convinced that it is a must read for patients with respiratory problems and the physicians who care for them. His book is also a must read for anyone who owns a home or is about to purchase or renovate one."

"Asthma and allergy sufferers, this book is essential reading. It will answer all your questions about why you suffer in your home and what you can do to prevent it. May takes you on a tour of your home, both interior and exterior, with a detailed description of the organic and inorganic substances that are making you ill... Will serve for years to come as the definitive guide to establishing disease-free living environments."

"A first-rate reference that is enjoyable to read."

"Jeffrey May is a skillful writer, and uses an informal style that is well suited to communication with a broad audience... This is the best book I've read in years. I couldn't put it down... It painlessly educates the reader about problem houses."

"May has made a timely, helpful—and even entertaining—contribution to a field that demands attention."

"Great light reading for the professional... Gives the average person control over his or her environment."

"I just finished reading this superb book with a multitude of examples of homes with poor indoor air quality which caused health problems for the occupants. You will find this book very helpful for finding the factors which worsen your asthma. Five out of five stars for this book."

"By giving a wide variety of excellent advice on identifying and cleaning up common household environmental hazards, Mr. May will help you make your home a more comfortable place to live—even if you don't have allergies."

"Practical advice and proven solutions."
