Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The DIY Network has transformed another TV show into book format. Builder and contractor Champley and designer Devers, cohosts of the titular show, lead homeowners through the house to address room-specific problems. The selected projects include minor repairs, renovations, and installations. The major drawback of this series is its poor translation from TV to book form--the photos, stills from the show, are blurry and show awkward positioning. What's more, the projects are incomplete, inconsistent, and accompanied by poor instructions. Basic techniques are not taught, and the tool section has few pictures. There are numerous better books covering renovations and home improvement projects. Not recommended.
