Review:

As a home repair columnist and a handyman myself, this book has been in my reference library since it was first published in 1995. Clear, well-organized, well-indexed, filled with useful illustrations and diagrams, this is a great book for anyone interested in learning about how to maintain their home, keep appliances running, and fix many things they might never have imagined they could. You will recoup the cost of this book the first time you don't have to call in a pro for a simple home repair!

From the Back Cover:

The biggest, best organized, and most complete collection of money-saving, time-saving home and workshop hints and tips ever assembled.

Get the expert's edge from time-tested know-how. Find out how the pros and savvy do-it-yourselfers work. Learn better ways to use your tools and give your work that professional look. Discover shortcuts and alternative techniques that will save you time and money and show you how to get the job done with materials at hand.

More than 2,000 ingenious, truly useful tips and tricks for the home handyman. Each brief, self-contained entry gives some vital shop-tested shortcut or proven trouble-saver that can help you make the difference between a botch-up and a job well done.

Over 1,300 crystal-clear full-color drawings and photographs illustrate the tips and hints and make them easy to follow.

Eleven browsable chapters help you hone your tool and shop skills to make your home a better place to live in. Eye-opening tips tell you what you need to know about maintenance and repair in the house, yard, and garage. They cover the whole gamut: woodworking, masonry, electrical work, plumbing, wall and ceiling repairs, flooring, doors and windows, siding and roofs, weatherproofing, childproofing, furniture and appliance repairs, painting and wallcovering, working with glass and plastics, heating and cooling repairs, even car care, gardening and yardwork, home storage, moving, sports equipment, and Christmas decorations.

Special features show you how to work safely, keep your home healthy, buy the right tools for the job and use them properly, and recycle hundreds of common items you would normally toss out.
