  Unlike traditional field guides that are organized by taxonomy, ALL THE BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA introduced a revolutionary and intuitive system of organization that quickly made the book the birdwatchers' guide of choice. The six-year undertaking involved assembling a team of specialized bird artists to provide original illustrations of the 800 species of North American birds.

Roundtable created the manuscript for, and edited and designed, this thoroughly revised and expanded trade edition of a bestselling Consumer Reports® cleaning title. Working closely with the editorial staff at Consumer Reports®, Roundtable devised new at-a-glance charts for removing stains from just about anything; created comprehensive A–Z listings for the best way to clean more than 200 household items, how to choose the right cleaning agents, and which appliances to use to get the job done; and commissioned more than 30 original illustrations for the book's playful and "clean" two-color design.

In tandem with the trade version, Roundtable also created a smaller one-color version to be used as a premium by Consumer Reports® under the title CONSUMER REPORTS HOW TO CLEAN PRACTICALLY ANYTHING.
