Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
For simple plumbing and electrical repairs, it's hard to imagine anything more basic than these new series guides. Each begins with a bare-bones explanation of how the respective system works and a brief introduction to the selection and use of tools. From there, it's on to a progression of small-scale projects such as lamp repairs and faucet replacements. In Home Wiring , the installation of a ceiling fan is the most complicated job; in Home Plumbing , it's the replacement of a disposal unit. The format consists of full-page line drawings accompanied by explanatory text, making the projects especially easy to follow for novice do-it-yourselfers. The modest price makes these good buys for active home repair collections.-- Bill Demo, Tompkins Cortland Community Coll., Dryden, N.Y.
