When I visited my daughter, I saw the book I had ordered for her husband on the coffee table. It is an updated version of the one I have with newer photos and approaches. She wants me to order one for each of her two boys in the future. I think maybe as Christmas gifts would make sense.

As important as safety goggles
My father in law bought me my first copy of this book. It is held together with duct tape. THIS IS THE BEST DO IT YOURSELF MANUAL EVER WRITTEN!!! It has instructions on the most obscure things...how to repair antique double hung windows...got it. How to install a massive fan in your crawlspace to cool your house significantly for almost no money...got it. Great pictures, great advice. Can't say enough good things about this book.
Publishers Weekly, 1991-09-27 This complete revamping of what is perhaps the champion of do-it-yourself guides, surveying almost everything under your roof and some of what lies beyond, has managed to retain all of its classic virtues without adding unnecessary pages. Rewritten, redesigned and newly illustrated, the upgraded edition also includes more color, improving the legibility of its explanatory drawings. New materials, techniques and tools are examined and explained with Reader's Digest 's customary clarity and thoroughness. For example, a chapter on electricity discusses track lighting, ceiling fans and telephones; the consumer who wonders what's going on inside his phone can see exactly what it looks like and consider how to deal with minor adjustments and repairs. The volume is also geared to the new breed of homeowners who admit to some degree of manual incompetence. They can learn how to deal with professionals without feeling intimidated and how to untangle the proper codes and regulations for major work. $400,000 ad/promo. (Oct.)
