The books says right on the back that it is a collection of Bust's DIY articles through the years (The last reviewer didn't like that I guess).
But I disagree, and I'm in love with this book. The DIY articles of Bust are some of my favorites. And it's crammed with seriously, anything you could ever need or want to learn. Wanna learn how to buy your first house? No problem. Want to learn how to make your own deodorant from Eco-friendly and natural ingredients? This will teach you. How to put together an emergency kit? Not enough people think of that. I mean seriously, you can learn how to replace a zipper, Create Finger Waves, Make soap, make cocktails, make your own beer, start a business, do your taxes, fixing a flat tire....the list goes on. This is one hefty book!
I just got it from the library, and the thought of parting with it makes me so sad, I'm going to order my own. And one for my best friend, and my brothers girlfriend, and....

I have been reading Bust magazine for years and it is one of my favorite magazines. I've been tearing out the crafts and recipes for years. I was excited when I saw the ad for this book, but it went far beyond my expectations. I'm a super busy person, but I find that if you go through there are a mix of projects that are appropriate for all levels of crafting, cooking or tips. For example, I've made the lamp out of books and it was super easy and I've received numerous complements on it. I know I won't be sewing my own clothes, but they have a skirt that you can make out of hem tape.

And cooking. Well, in my little bit of spare time I love cooking and the recipes are mostly handed down from grandmothers, mothers, aunts (which unfortunately, you don't always get the backstory in the book) and run the gamut from super fancy to super easy.

I promise you that if I, the non-artistic, almost type-A MBA working 60 hours a week can find time to do something from this book and love it, you can too!

This book is perfect for any woman who wants to know how to do it all, and doesn't mind getting her hands dirty. Every section had projects that I wanted to make or do, and I even enjoyed reading about the things that I might never find a use for. There are quirky projects for every type of girl, every aspect of your world, and every stage of your life. I mean, how many books teach you how to cook a fantastic meal, stitch the place setting and customize the plates to put it on, sew a dress, doll yourself up for the party, clean up the mess, tune up you bike, and then burn off the calories you consumed eating your goodies?

I really enjoyed this book. Although they tried a little too hard to be personable (with the effect of seeming like a middle schooler who just learned curse words), overall it was really interesting with some definitely doable projects.
