This collection of humor columns from the award-winning author is the second volume in the Of Moose and Men series. This volume takes a look at all those little things that go into making a house, a home. From doing battle with home maintenance and improvements, to exploring the various family relationships, to pets, Poynor takes humorous aim at what goes into making a home. The pieces contained in Home is Where the Harm Is span the nineteen years of Poynor's column. Although set in Alaska, the situations in the book could apply to almost any locale. As he says in the Foreword, "It's always preferable to learn from someone else's mistakes." In honor of those to whom the book is dedicated, twenty-five percent of all royalties received will be donated for cancer research.
