Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual: Completely Revised and Updated by Editors of The Family Handyman


Since 1973 over 10 million copies of Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual have been sold. And now, the definitive “on-the-job” manual has just gotten bigger and better than ever. The editors of Reader's Digest and The Family Handyman magazine have joined forces to completely revise, update, rewrite, and redesign this home improvement classic. This edition combines the best elements of the original manuals with The Family Handyman's rich informational and photographic archives, new illustrations and photographs, and the wisdom and experience of over 150 of the best experts in the field today.

Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual is written in a style of text that addresses readers in a very accessible, conversational tone for easy, user-friendly assistance with every do-it-yourself task. All instructions and materials have been updated to address current codes (electrical, plumbing and building), and revised to indicate the very latest in materials, tools, and technology.

Suitable for beginners and experts alike, the new innovative ideas and features include:
* Over 3,000 photos and illustrations including more than 1,500 new full-color photos and 100 new technical drawings
* New sidebars, such as “Shop Smart,” “Handy Hints,” “Go Figure,” and “Safety First”, provide readers with helpful information
* Two new chapters, Landscaping and Storage Projects, include material and cutting lists
* Yellow highlighted notes of caution or important points to remember * Cross-references at the top of each page
* Metrics are given with most measurements throughout the text and a complete metric conversion chart is included at the rear of the book.
The book's tried-and-true instructions provide do-it-yourself solutions to a ton of problems that could cost a fortune if you had to hire a professional. This manual is a “must-have” reference guide for every homeowner.
