Book Description

For more than 40 years millions of people have relied on the Expert series to tell them what to do in the garden. Now the same unique approach has focused on home care. The Home DIY Expert breaks new ground, as the first Garden Expert did all those years ago. This book is not designed for people who wish to become electricians or DIY fanatics. There are no complicated diagrams and no instructions how to put in a new radiator. However, it does tell you how to pick the right carpet as well as how to remove stains from it, and it shows you how the central heating system works as well as how to stop the pipes knocking. Quite simply, it is a typical Expert.

By T. Bently VINE VOICE on 13 Sept. 2007
Format: Paperback
A lot of DIY and home maintenance books these days seem to be more concerned about interior design and how to make interesting features out of MDF, so when I was having problems with my central heating I was determined to find something which provided some more nitty-gritty information.

Thankfully The Home DIY Expert fitted the bill. Although a little old-fashioned in layout, it does provide the practical tips you need to do basic house repair tasks. In my case, the diagram of how a domestic heating system works, despite looking like something from a GCSE science textbook, allowed me to get a better understanding of how the various parts link up.

And after getting a £80 plumber's bill, at least now I'll remember to bleed my radiators.

I've been a fan of The "Expert" range of books since I was a kid (just to show how accessible these books are), the first one being a copy of The Home Expert (Expert books) I picked up at a Garden centre near to the Camelot Theme Park in Lancashire when I was on Holiday there back around 1987/88. The family collection has since expanded to owning "The Garden Expert", "The House Plant Expert", "The Flower Expert", "The Tree & Shrub Expert", "The Lawn Expert" + more recently Vegetable and Herb Expert.

I recently bought this "The Home DIY Expert" as part of a shopping spree to expand the collection, and have just had a flick through it. The flick through suggests that this "The Home DIY Expert" is pretty much exactly the same as The Home Expert (Expert books), down to the photographs & illustrations inside - except there's a few bits cut out from it... the bit at the start with money management advice + the bit in the "inside the house" section with advice on livingroom / kitchen / diningroom / bedrooms / bathroom, etc.

So, if you already have The Home Expert (Expert books), I wouldn't bother buying it.

Originally had this book from the library and found it full of simple, straightforward information. Decided that to have one on the bookshelf would be very useful.
