  • Highly recommended. Nov 20, 2014
    by Linda V

    This book not only teaches long forgotten skills but also reinforces abilities you may already have. We enjoyed this book so much that we're giving it as a gift to our grown children.

  • Very informative May 11, 2012
    by Laura

    This book has so much information! It will be very helpful for anyone trying to get back to basics. It is a good reference manual for basic living skills. I find something new every time I pick it up.

  • Great reference book Feb 3, 2011
    by Rabbit99

    Reader's Digest books have long been a favorite of mine for reference books. Gave this one to my son; sort of like a Mother Earth reference book on how to built your own log dwelling to raising goats.

  • Great Book Dec 16, 2010
    by kalorrah

    I had this book long ago, and it got damaged in water so this is a replacement. I have learned so much from this book, its something my husband and I read and learn to do different things together! Would highly recommend!

  • Oldie but goodie! Apr 29, 2010
    by Fifty

    This book has everything. A dozen or more books rolled into one, from stain removal to building your own house. The housewife/handyman's encyclopedia for everything under the sun. Easy to interpret graphica and even a 'man' can follow the instructions. A must have in every home.
