I searched online and could not find what this book actually covers. Many reviewers have said it covers pretty much everything, but there was no online contents table that I could find. As I've since bought this book, I attach the contents table as photos and hope this helps others. I gave the book 4 stars with a view to increasing to 5 once I've done more DIY.

I made a very poor call and bought a similar type book from a well known DIY chain store. That was a big mistake, and despite being a hefty book it was very disappointing in its content.

In contrast, this book is what I wanted all along. It is well divided and well laid out, with good graphical representations. Some of the information I was not expecting, but is very much welcome (for instance, exact measurements for what someone would need to take off their coat in a hall comfortably, or dry themselves after a shower).

Even having only given it a casual read I am better informed on several topics. The only drawback for me is that being in Ireland some of the legal/planning sections are not applicable, but that's no fault of the authors and I would recommend it to overseas purchasers nonetheless.

Gave this to my son for Christmas--he's used it many times while doing up his new home, and says that he finds it really useful. Everything is clearly laid out, with good instructions and illustrations.

Bought this for my son in law to go with the drill I got him for his birthday. This is a good comprehensive book and will hopefully help him with DIY jobs now they are home owners

This is THE book to get. If you're fed up paying unfeasibly large bills and thought you were handless, read this book and go for it. You will save the cover price many times over with your first job. Just follow what they say exactly and you'll do a better job than the professionals.
