Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gazoo One of the best DIY books out there.
I'm a huge Home Depot fan and spend at least one day a week in my local store. I was in the home improvement business for 20 years, but there is still stuff I don't know. I picked up this book, and love the fact that not only does it give clear illustrations and instructions, but the pages are loaded with helpful tips (often from professionals), to ensure you do the job right the first time.
I have used this book to install gutters, repair a leaky roof, fix a toilet, among other things, and will use it again this weekend to help install a bamboo floor.
I've read and collected a lot of DIY books, videos and magazines over the years, this is by far, the best book of it's kind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KateMo Excellent for the new homeowner
I bought this for myself when I bought my first house and now I buy it as a gift for everyone I know who buys their first houses. I learned so many things that I would not have attempted without the step by step instructions. Its the only home repair book I use. Great for everyone, but especially for inexperienced people like myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary good reference book for home projects
This book was purchased to help with a small dry wall repair project. The project was not done by me, but by a friend with some experience in various home projects, but who had never done dry wall. It provided all the information needed and the project came out as tho a professional had done it. Other upcoming projects have been researched and the book appears to cover all of them. I would recommend this book to any person doing "week-end home projects".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CTown82 Great for the DIY'er
This book is worth the $14.95 even if you never use a quarter of it...you'll get your moneys worth! I know how to lay tile, but I didn't know how to lay-out a tile job, this book paired with Tiling 1-2-3 took me step by step through the lay out for a ceramic tile side job I picked up. Fantastic Purchase!
