Library Journal Review

This solid effort provides quick answers to house maintenance questions, covering dozens of "handyman" jobs, from pre-purchase to sale preparation. Vandervort (Home Magazine: How Your House Works) supplies basic how-it-works explanations and repair advice for more than 100 major and small appliances and also details when to call a professionalDand why. Writing in a friendly, open style, he divides his text into nine sections, with each section covering a major aspect of the home-owning experience. Broader in scope than Lou Manfredini's Mr. Fix-It: 101 Answers to the Most Commonly Asked Questions About Repairing Your House (Rare Air Media, 2000), this is a useful addition to most public libraries.
