Ever tried to hang a pair of curtains, carve a joint of meat or wash a cashmere jumper and found the result far from perfect? Essential practical skills just don't seem to be taught anymore so how are we meant to cope? Don't worry - help is at hand. "The Indispensable Book of Practical Life Skills" tells you everything you need to know to be a fully functioning adult in today's busy world. Divided into four highly illustrated chapters - house and garden, health and beauty, travel and sports and accident and emergency - this book offers manageable step-by-step advice on how to cope with the practical challenges of every day life. All those skills that you never quite managed to learn but that older generations seem to know intuitively will suddenly be at your fingertips - whether it be skinning an animal, making compost or mending a hem. This guide is utterly indispensable: it is your mum, dad, grandparents, mentor, driving instructor and teacher all rolled into one. Never again will you wonder how you missed out on that essential practical advice when your DIY book shelves collapse to the floor once more.
