This is a good book for the DIYer because it explains projects in a simple tone and includes pictures.

I have not bought this book...yet. I recently borrowed it from the library, and will keep renewing it until they force me to return it. When they do, I intend on hunting it down at my neighborhood bookstore.
This book is very comprehensive for the do-it-yourselfer that is just starting out, and contains many neat tips and tricks that even the expert handyman would not have known. The book is extremely useful for everyday stuff, and even has instructions on those once a year fix-it items.
The book is arranged in different categories, such as Lawn & Garden, Plumbing, Electrical Appliances, with subcategories like pruning, toilets, and washer/dryer. About half of each page is covered with colorful handrawn pictures that apply to the tips listed. Most tips don't have pictures, but these are usually ones that don't require them. The other half of the page contains detailed instructions on how to replace/repair/install items of importance. These instructions have real pictures of the process, and are wonderful for reference.
I would recommend this book to anyone who owns a home. Once you buy it, read everything once so you'll know what's in there, then put it in an accessible place so you can grab it at a moments notice.

As a single parent and homeowner, I can't tell you how handy this book has been. If you don't have a friend, relative or spouse who's a handyman, you definitely need this book. I've been able to save enough money to furnish my home. I've purchased many of the Reader's Digest books in the past and found them to be of high quality and excellent value. This book contains step-by-step procedures and instructions that are depicted in numbered color photos that makes easy work of repairs and maintenance-plus you are assured it's done right.

This book is surprisingly fun. You name it and this book has a tip on the most effective way to do it. I bought this book in conjunction with two other home maintenance and repair books and it has many items that were not covered in the other two. I only gave it three stars because I will probably only refer to this one after the other two to verify that there isn't an easier way. What would make this book better? I say combine this book with their "New Fix-It-Yourself Manual" (my top choice), and you have an ace book!

This is very good. It got here faster than anticipated.. The only downsides was a small indentation on the front cover and there was not tracking on the package. I recommend this seller. Thank you :)

This book covers just about every situation that the average homeowner would run into. It's well laid out, making it easy to navigate. While some things are a bit advanced (like the roof and chimney repairs), most topics are pretty easy to understand if you don't have much experience.

So many helpful ideas, a few are outdated ( how to fix the VCR) but most of the ideas are timeless and still are used today. This book is full of handy, helpful hints from garage storage ideas to senior safety ideas, how to do concrete repairs or fix the old wicker chair. There are even ideas on decorating, home safety, and household emergencies. My husband and I are pretty hand people but this book sure gave me some great ideas, my husband even found a few " why didnt I think if that " ideas. And for the price you cant beat it.
