Q: I am a huge fan of this site, and frequent peruser of your books. I *finally* am moving into my own apartment, and I am wanting to buy a book. My budget allows only one. Would I be better off with the Eight Step Home Cure or the Small, Cool Spaces book?

Editor: Thanks, Samuel! The Cure is a step-by-step plan to work on your home (text-based) and the Small, Cool book is more of an inspiration book (lots of photos!). They complement each other well because the formats are so different. I'll throw the question out to the readers as to which they would recommend for your first book purchase - please let Samuel know which one you think he should pick up for getting his new home ready.
