Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This odd assembly of tips and small projects is gleaned from the publisher's other titles and organized by general topic. There's not enough in-depth information here to complete a project. The tips are generally valuable, but this book feels like Sunday dinner leftovers—tasty scraps rather than a full meal. Save your money and purchase books covering specific home systems or projects.
