First of all, anyone buying this book should realize that it is what its title says: a book on home improvement, not home repair. For example, the book shows how to install hardwood strip flooring. The book does not discuss how to repair an existing hardwood floor. However, the book does treat topics like removing an existing plaster wall since such removal may be needed for a home improvement project. The book is written for homeowners, not professionals. For the homeowner the book does cover about all the types of home improvement projects that an amateur (like me) would attempt: walls, ceilings, floors, and lighting along with kitchens and bathrooms. Everything is well illustrated, in fact the detailed photographs of every step are the strength of the book. The photographs are clear and provide an excellent guide to each step. Looking through all the photographs provides a good view of what needs to be done. For most projects the book seems to provide all the information needed, but there are gaps. For example, the book does not discuss how to treat the exposed edges of that hardwood floor you just installed. For complex projects additional information or some expert help may be needed. Overall, this is an excellent single volume book on home improvement. It may not answer every possible question, but it seems superior to other single volume books on the subject.
