Like the other Black & Decker book I own, this one eschews long winded explanations for pictures and a few explanations. In many cases, that's exactly what's needed, and drywall is just such an instance. I needed to know about drywall types, drywall fasteners, and drywall finishing, and this told me exactly what I needed to know. Additionally, it covers working with drywall substitutes in wet situation, namely Hardy Backer Board and similar, as well as how to deal with transitions between HBB and regular drywall.

I just had a header beam installed in my basement. Part of DIY was to drywall around the beam, 2x6 supports, and 2 sides of 1'x12' of exposed ceiling. This book gave me the confidence to DIY.

As Dana mentioned, this is a must-have. Buy this book for under $20 and you'll save $1000's going forward.

Pretty good, I learned some things I didnt know before. The drywall is already up so I'm glad I watched the DVD because I was definitely going to make a mistake when it came to mud & taping. I returned some things to Homedepot and bought the right tools.

I have several of the Black & Decker books in this series, and they have taken much of the mystique out of home maintenance. This book takes the fear out of drywall repair and installation. Is there an art to it? Yes. Can you do it? Yes. The companion DVD gives some great advice and takes you step by step through a few typical scenarios you may encounter during a project. We have decided to refinish our basement, and I have complete confidence that I can hang the drywall as I've used the tips in this book to patch damage in other places with outstanding results.
