Women Can Fix Anything Jul 10, 2008
This book was purchased as a gift for our daughter. She was remodeling a beautiful apartment and needed instructions on some of the repairs, but daddy wasn't nearby. She said the book was a wonderful gift, and used it often. In fact it gave her some ideas of other projects she could and would undertake. I liked it so much I bought myself one also!
A Terrific Help! Jan 5, 2000
This book is a must-have for anyone doing their own home repairs. Step-by-step directions are presented in clear, simple language. Each section begins with a list of all necessary tools--no surprises just when you've got that toilet tank in pieces! Illustrations actually look like what you need to see. Even my dad asked for a copy of this book!
De-Mystifies Home Repair! Dec 31, 1999
This is the perfect book for those of us who know nothing about home repair. Its step-by-step instructions are clear and easy to follow, without technical jargon or mystery widgets. The cautionary notes help allay my fears that I could do something dangerously dumb, especially in the electrical and plumbing sections. This book is a "must" in homes where no one's "handy!"
a money saver May 2, 1999
This book paid for itself the first time I changed an electrical switch. I am getting psyched up for working on the drippy faucet. I am now enlightened about the mysterious workings of the toilet and know I will probably never have to meet the plumber. My only criticisim is that I thought the lesson on installing an underground sprinkler system was a bit far out and doesn't truly fit the category of "Incredibly Simple Weekend Projects" I was researching how to change a toilet, which turned out to be simple enough after I watched and paid someone to do it. I would definately include that how-to in the next edition.
