The larger woodworking projects (anything with a materials list and a cut list) might only take 4 hours of your time to cut and dry-fit, but some of them assume you have a fully-equipped woodshop, complete with table saw, jointer, nail gun, a dozen or more clamps, etc. They also don't account for the time you spend finishing (sanding and staining/painting), so several of the woodworking projects are more likely to take you an entire weekend. If you have exactly the right tools, you can cut all the parts and dry fit them, but don't expect to start any of the larger woodworking projects and be completely finished in 4 hours or less.
At the other extreme, I'd say some of the "projects" don't qualify as projects at all--like pressing the reset button on your garbage disposal or GFCI outlet--and belong in a "Homeowner's Guide" type of book instead. I'd rather see these listed as tips, but I guess then there wouldn't be nearly 101 "projects" in the book. Then again, maybe it's not so bad if I just have to press a reset button and my wife thinks I spent half the day rewiring the kitchen outlets or rebuilding the garbage disposal. ;)
For many of the projects, you need to know what size fitting, pipe, connector, fastener, etc., is already installed. The most time-consuming part for most of my repair projects is figuring out the size of the part I need to replace, especially if I can't easily remove the part and take it with me. Most of the time it requires multiple trips to the store. It would be nice if the book provided some helpful hints on how to only make one trip to the store.
Despite these faults, I still think it's a good book, and I think everyone is sure to find a use for at least one or two dozen tips or projects.
I'd say get it and enjoy, just don't expect anything miraculous.
The book was in excellent condition and I would use this vendor again.
