Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Can you really "cheat at home repair"? Bredenberg, author of other books from Sterling's "How To Cheat" series (e.g., How To Cheat at Cleaning), gives eclectic advice, such as how to apply cooking spray on bird feeder poles to thwart raiding squirrels. While there are a lot of good fixes collected here, Readers Digest's Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual(2005) remains the go-to source on the topic.
