Editorial Reviews

"Owning a house inevitably means repairs. While there are lots of books addressing various aspects of home improvements and fixes, a general manual covering everything from top to bottom is favorable. This is an encyclopedia of home repairs, pulling much of its material from two previous books in the "Black & Decker" seriesâ??Black & Decker The Complete Photo Guide to Home Repair and Black & Decker The Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement. The pictures are large, thankfully, and the instruction is clear, making repairs and improvements quite doable. The book's arrangement is alphabetical by project title. Unfortunately, that order is not always intuitive. While there is a detailed index and keyword list, it is more difficult to browse through and find related projects. Still, the work makes a solid companion to Creative Homeowner's Ultimate Guide, which has a broader range of fixes and improvements but not as much detailed instruction. VERDICT For libraries that lack the titles it pulls from, this compilation is a recommended addition. The photos and instructions are quite strong, and the lack of topical arrangement is awkward but not insurmountable." - Library Journal
