ceramic tile over tile?

I was told by a Lowe's employee, I could put new tile over existing floor tile, Is this a good idea?

As I understand, as long as the first floor is in good shape and the reason you are re-doing is not because tiles have popped up or the grout has cracked all over.

Use a good latex-fortified thinset, or even better, use the plain thinset and mix it with latex instead of water.

I covered my mosaic tiles with 12" tiles and they are stuck pretty good.
