    This book demystifies some of the simple, around-the-house chores that you always thought you should be able to handle on your own, but somehow still weren’t sure how to tackle.
    The projects are well explained and have given me the courage and confidence to take some of them on. It’s also nice to know the guide is in the book case, so when I start to think about calling a plumber or an electrician, I’ll be able to look in the book and decide whether or not I really do need to make that call.
    I’ve noticed that some people think the book’s simplistic, while others seem to think it’s too heavily slanted toward a female audience. Since women have not traditionally done a lot of home repair (myself included), I think the book is ideally suited to its target group.

    I bought this book for my Mom for Christmas last year. She was on her own for the first time in her life. When I visited her this Christmas, she was complaining about her toilet running. I said, “Mom, get the book” She got the book out, I read the instructions out loud to her, and she fixed her OWN toilet. She was so proud of herself. Everyone that called on Christmas got the blow by blow account of how she fixed her own toilet. Buy this book. You will learn how to fix alot of those annoying household problems. Save money, and get a feeling of accomplishment. Buy it for your Mom, Dad, everyone. Highly recommended!
