About the Author:

Ed Del Grande is a three-time master plumber and contractor and the host of Ed the Plumber on the DIY Network, and is featured on HGTV pro broadband media. A former comedian, Ed has made appearances on NBCÂ’s Today show, CNN, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and MSNBC. He writes a Q&A column that is featured in Scripps Howard News Service newspapers across the country.

From Booklist:

Who could resist a home repair pro who launches his first book with this introductory homily: "Get to know your home like you get to know a friend." So begins this systematic do-it-yourself manual on repairs and renovations almost any homeowner can tackle—with strong words about those jobs only professionals should handle. This Rhode Island contractor and media host knows well the fear and dread behind the "Honey, will you fix this?" request; he starts quite simply by defining tools and demystifying house systems, the latter accomplished through black-and-white illustrations, uncomplicated narrative, and plenty of Ed's pro tips and Ed's trouble tips as guides. Not only does Del Grande explain the most common how-to procedures, from unclogging toilets and sinks to repairing small drywall holes, he also counsels readers on a host of non-DIY projects: for instance, selecting shower grab bars, monitoring the three Gs (gutters, proper grading, and groundwater), and considering important items before singing a contractor's contract. Easy-to-use, lingo-free directions. Jacobs, Barbara
