Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The home improvement experts at Black & Decker have compiled a comprehensive -- and completely comprehensible -- how-to guide for in-home projects; from wiring to plumbing to remodeling bathrooms and kitchens; from converting basement and attics to installing doors and windows. The captioned illustrations make this volume superbly useful.
From the Publisher

In which denim-clad men and work-booted, pony-tailed, mom-jean-wearing women measure, fix, and construct various aspects of homes. Coverage of the entire home, from attic to basement, are illustrated well enough to make a grown man drool. From installing a new vanity to a sleeper floor in the basement, this offers enough instruction to step you through the major operations of each project, but watch out—it does not deal with covering everything that can (and will) go wrong or be freaky with your miserable excuse for a house. From installing metal ceilings to ceramic tile to three ways (three way switches, you filthy-minded galoot!), it’s all here. Other topics to pique your dude radar: installing wallboard. Bullnose edging. Installing an undersink garbage disposal. It might as well be a picture of Jessica Simpson—you can’t look away, can you? - Library Journal, April 1, 2010

Black & Decker The Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement. Creative Pub: Quayside. 2009. c.560p. illus. index. ISBN 978-1-58923-452-9. $35. DIY

This comprehensive manual is an update to the 2005 edition. Some new materials, like bamboo flooring, have been added, and outdated materials have been dropped. If you need a comprehensive manual on the topic, this will do nicely. -- Library Journal, June 2009
