Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As successful comedians have previously proven, home repairs can be funny. Actress, building contractor, and TV show host Ruffman here takes the stage with renovation and repair projects. Using humor to motivate, she covers indoor maintenance issues, selected general repairs, and some home improvement, with helpful sidebar tips throughout. Unfortunately, the photos generally feature the author posing rather than illustrating a project. Most hapless homeowners want a how-to book that helps them find solutions quickly. Boasting silly chapter titles but no index, this book does not meet that need. Funny-yes; motivational-yes; helpful-not so much. Stick with Reader's Digest Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual, the bible of DIY repair books. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
