Think before you buy !,
This review is from: Complete DIY Manual (Hardcover)
Whilst I agree with the other reviews, this book is getting out of sync with improvements that have happened in DIY since first publication and keeping up with the spate of DIY programmes on the media.
It badly needs a new updated issue with some new features like - the breed of new flooring products growing around us - what is best to buy and how to fit it.
The new generation of powered tools - jigs, biscuit jointers, routers etc, then the new types of electrical installations .. new type hobs/oven/multifunction microwaves, new kitchen lighting techniques etc.
Maybe a complete section on how best to fit a new kitchen and a new bathroom with all the mod con's.. there are very little books on seperate projects like these - a money spinner no doubt for someone keen to jump on this bandwagon.
All in all def a book for every shelf as the major parts do not age. Excellent pictorial approach and clear understanding.
