A good companion to this is Home Maintenance For Dummies, which covers some of the more involved and costly jobs around the house. Armed with these two books, you can save a lot of money (I made the cost of both back with my first DIY fix) and keep your dwelling in tip-top shape.
I decided I needed to learn a bit more to avoid these type of situations. I like the "For-Dummies" series. I have few of their books in a wide range of topics (from Biology to Computers and now Home Repairs). They text is friendly and they have good tips.
If you aren't a contractor and own a house, buy this book.
