Having embarked upon a major overhaul of my bathroom this book was bought mostly for the plastering side, although now I have it I can see it will help me with my drive, patio and garden wall projects later this summer.
It has clear no-nonsense instructions, with good photographs and littered with little tips. It confirms all the "advice" I have collected from around the net and adds some little gems to make the task easier for the enthusiast.
Clearly not aimed at the professional, this book has given me all the advice I needed. And as a bonus, it is broken down into the kind of projects you are likely to undertake and gives advice on the tools needed.
The only suggestion I would make to improve this book is to include some rough estimates on material quantities and timescales to help plan the job up front.
Recommend to the DIY enthusiast!!
