    Glad I found this book! The thing I like about it is that its easy to find something that applies to you. The ideas are straight to the point. I read through the book and quickly picked up 6 ideas right away. Hanging baskets — homemade out of wooden chairs? I absolutely found some great gardening ideas. From inside the home to outside the home there is some great ideas in this book.

    Prepare to be astounded! This short book is jam packed with great ideas for a wide assortment
    of projects around the house. Reading through the book, you can’t help but find something to
    inspire your creative side. I have already found a few ideas to keep me busy this weekend.
    I plan to keep this book around so that I can refer to it often!

    Good combination of Creativity and Resourcefulness, September 13, 2014

    A good combination of creativity and resourcefulness. As you can see the book cover has the images of tools. Well,I interpret it as you have this book as your tool to kick your brains on doing unconventional things. The ideas on how to recycle your waste to create amazing stuff is also amazing. the author got me on that.Overall, this is worth it.

    This review is from: Home Improvement 1-2-3 (Hardcover)
    I gave this book as a gift to my brother when he bought 70 year-old home. He said it paid for itself in the first week of having it! He was able to solve a plumbing problem by following the book’s advice and purchasing a $5 part, rather than paying for a plumber!

    This review is from: Home Improvement 1-2-3 (Hardcover)
    This book is a good introduction to home improvement. It provides detailed instructions on how to handle a large variety of projects. It’s not the end all be all, however, and it’s important to make sure you have a basic understanding of tools before you start. I would recommend pairing it with one of the Black and Decker series books, which are much more specific to the project you may be tackling.

    From Basics to Intermediate and to Advanced!, May 25, 2014

    This review is from: Home Improvement 1-2-3 (Hardcover)
    Words cannot simply describe how well this book is organized.

    Teaches you the tools needed, hot to use the tools, Safety precautions and techniques, and open-ended projects.

    What I mean by open-Ended projects is that the projects and renovations you want are only limited to YOUR creativity. The book teaches you the basics, a general to advanced guideline, and the rest is how detailed you want your project to be.

    Incredible book that covers everything from how electricity works, to 3-way switches, converting 120V to 240V outlets, adding new circuit breakers for expanding homes, to installing Home-network panels (Internet Cat5/Coaxial/telephone lines/etc.).

    I highly recommend this book to people entirely fresh to electricity, as a review manual, and a guideline to planning new electrical projects in your home!

    I also own “Black & Decker The Complete Guide to Wiring 5th Edition”, and “Wiring a House 4th Edition: Completely Revised and Updated.”

    As a comparison:
    Home Depot 123 is like a manual for quick easy jobs.
    For people who think receptacles shoot lightning and great for beginners as its simple and easy to understand. Basically the Basics but intermediate enough to mess with circuit breakers and not get electrocuted to death by them.

    Black & Decker is HARDCORE!
    They assume you know what you are doing and you won’t electrocute yourself with a metal ladder on of a puddle of water while running HOT electric lines. This book goes straight into advanced wiring designs and circuits for projects, electrical codes you need to know to be up to standards, and installing therm-electric floor-warming systems. It also goes lightly into electric appliance repair such as disassembling a burned out lamp circuitry to integrating a back-up power supply to your house.

    Wiring a House For Pros by Pros (The name says it all)
    This book teaches you the experience to be an electrician. It emphasizes the difference between an electrician that came fresh out of school and an electrician that has been On-the-job for 30+ years. Words cannot simply describe the ESSENTIAL information in this book. If Black & Decker is hardcore, this book is for Journey Men and Masters of the Trade. However this book does not go in-depth in planning home electrical projects. It makes you a smarter, wiser, and a more experienced electrician.

    For a range of Difficulty in understanding/learning how to wire a home:
    BEGINNER>>>>>>>>>>INTERMEDIATE>>>>>>>>>>ADVANCED
    Home-Depot 123>>>>>Black&Decker>>>>>>>>>>>Wiring a House For Pros By Pros

    If you do not know what a wire stripper or wire cutter is or how to use it, I highly suggest the Home Depot 123.

    If you know and can differentiate what a 14 gauge, 8 gauge, and a 6 gauge is, I recommend the Black & Decker.

    If you know all of the previously mentioned items and need advanced mastery, I suggest Wiring a Home for pros by Pros.
