    Great guide to all types of help, October 5, 1998
    By A Customer
    This review is from: New Fix-It-Yourself Manual: How to Repair, Clean, and Maintain Anything and Everything In and Around Your Home (Hardcover)
    I loved this book! I am a single female, and my dad bought it for me when I bought my first house. Now I’m going to buy it for a friend who just bought a house himself.
    Just this weekend alone I fixed my ice maker and my garbage disposal using the book as a guide.
    The pictures are great, and the language is easy to understand. I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a great fix-it book.

    Not as good as the do-it-yourself book, April 8, 2005
    By 

    This review is from: New Fix-It-Yourself Manual: How to Repair, Clean, and Maintain Anything and Everything In and Around Your Home (Hardcover)
    First off, I do want to say that this is not a negative review – I think the book is okay, but fairly limited. A far better book is the do-it-yourself book (by the same author). My reasons for recommending this book are based on the number of times I have found useful information when needed. I often pulled the fix-it-yourself book off the bookshelf without being helped, while the do-it-yourself book frequently gave me what I needed to know. I very rarely pull the fix-it-yourself book out anymore.

    Note – there is a new edition of the do-it-yourself book out, and amazon will not pull it up first. The new edition is even cheaper.

    The ultimate housewarming gift for the first-time homeowner, May 6, 2003

    This book is the best housewarming gift I ever received!
    Your furnace blowing nothing but cold air? This book will show you how to safely relight your pilot light. KitchenAid mixer gone on the fritz? Inkjet printer no longer drawing paper from the paper cassette? Dishwasher broker?
    A troubleshooting chart and gorgeous, clear diagrams will explain not only how to fix almost any household problem, but also gives the level of technical skill required to finish the job, as well any special tools required to do so.
    Kudos to the folks at Reader’s Digest for producing such an excellent book. This volume is now my standard housewarming gift to all my friends.
