From Library Journal This profusely color-illustrated volume is an excellent update to the popular Reader's Digest Complete Do-It-Yourself Manual (Reader's Digest Assn., dist. by Random, 1973). The book's intended audience is the occasional do-it-yourselfer with basic to intermediate skills. The coverage is comprehensive, though not overly detailed. Each chapter profiles a particular component of "doing it yourself," and discusses emergency repairs, various tools, fasteners, and building materials before moving into procedures on "how to use." User safety and environmental protection are stressed throughout. The format of the book lends itself to exploration. This update is recommended for public and academic libraries owning the original and desiring a worthy successor, or for those with interest in the area.
