HOME SAFE HOME
Armed with research by Consumer Reports magazine, an angel on the buying public's shoulder for more than 50 years, hosts Tom Miller and Nancy Fleming give a room-by-room home safety tour.
They're helpful when it comes to fire extinguishers, escape ladders, microwave leakage, recommending a burglar alarm system and offering insurance advice. The kitchen and fire safety tips are worthwhile, but there are simplistic moments, such as Nancy warning against running cords across well-traveled areas because somebody could trip. She doesn't say whether or not chewing on them is a bad idea. (Lorimar, $19.95; 800-323-5275)
