Reviews

“A book that does exactly what it says on the tin” – Sarah Vine, The Times “For novices and competent DIYers alike, it continues to be the most user-friendly manual for any job from installing a toilet to replacing a tap…A new generation of DIYers may no longer justify space for a weighty book like this on their shelves, but for me at least, it is an essential reference.” – Self Build & Design
