The unique value of this book however, is the wisdom he shares after encountering so many different situations and finding solutions to them. It is unbelievably difficult to find some solutions to renovation problems. Most books simply talk about simple, standard situations, not the difficult ones. His discussion of basement refinishing for a living space is absolutely priceless. I wonder whether this advice is anywhere else in print.
The truly amazing thing, however, is that a book as valuable as this, printed on sturdy glossy paper stock and thoroughly illustrated, is 14 bucks.
The one other thing that they could improve on this book is to have more diagrams and pictures. There is ALOT of information condensed into 200 pages. This book would be better suited if it was 400-500 pages and some of the concepts explained a little more thoroughly. The best way to read this book is to read and surf the internet to better understand some of the information.
11/2011 update: I am giving this book to a family member and ordered the trade version, which is more detailed, for myself. Either way, the information is invaluable. Still 5 stars!
