Can't duct tape fix everything? Petersen, author of home improvement and organization books, presents a collection of fix-it tips in this compact volume. With tongue-in-cheek humor and scant illustrations, the text is clear and concise, and experts are cited frequently. Featuring a quick intro to tools, the book covers home maintenance, small repairs, structural problems, and appliance repairs. An emergency preparedness kit is also included. The comprehensive index makes up for the loose organization of topics. This easy-to-follow book certainly doesn't replace large homeowner manuals, but it contains unique tips and information. Recommended for most collections, if not for your home library.
