Tile books

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any GOOD books on the subject.
I'm not talking about the box store books. (everything you need to know in 200 pages).
I'm talking about something in depth, you might find in a tile school or a college class.
Seems those box store books show you just enough to get you into trouble.

I saw the promo for it, but wasn't sure if it was another fluff book or not.
I bought the Black & Decker Complete Guide to Ceramic & Stone tile.
It's OK if you want an over view.
I was looking for something that covered details.
But if that's a good one, I'd give it a shot.

John's book is very good. He covers EVERTHING you will need to know and you might even get an autographed copy and here on the forum you can get all of your question answered.
Good Luck

As a noob, I bought John's book along with "Setting Tile" by Michael Byrne. In my opinion they have provided a tremendous amount of info, more then enough to make me dangerous.

Highly recommend both.

I just received Johns book yesterday and spent about 2 hours reading through it last night.
I have to agree, it's well worth the money.
Thanks for the heads up.
Jeff
