My husband gave this book to me as a gift. I thought...whatever...but I actually sat down and started reading through. It is full of interesting ways to fix EVERYTHING! I couldn't believe it. It has so many fixes in there you would never remember them all. It is a book that you have to keep handy so that when things start to go wrong...then you can pull it out and do it yourself. I have it on the kitchen shelf with the cookbooks! Written very simply..anyone can understand. Lots of diagrams...Well worth it! I highly recommend this book!
