Rehash of articles in her magazine. Avoid.

...these others books that I think are grand:
The New Decorating Book (Better Homes and Gardens(R))
by Better Homes and Gardens, Elegant and Easy Rooms: 250 Trade Secrets for Decorating Your Home, Elegant and Easy Living Rooms: 100 Trade Secrets for Designing With Style (Elegant and Easy).
I used all three with my designer and the results were delightful. Martha is just so passe anymore.

If you don't subscribe to Martha's expensive magazine (I don't), then this book is the only thing you need to own. It is the best of all the good ideas without weeding through ads.

This book puts the best of the best right where you need them. I have used this book so many times I can't even count. My apartment is a testament to Martha Stewart, and when I buy a house, it will be even worse. I can't tell you how the dishwashing soap bottle just improves the look of the kitchen, not to mention using the concentrated stuff and diluting it with water saves money and the environment. Just so many things, I can't count. . .little things, that make it go a long way. See also Good Things For Organizing, which gave me four things to use the night I got it.

Another excellent effort by Martha! The photos are pristine in their color and clarity. Her ideas are excellent and, as usual, serve to inspire those of us who enjoy our homes as our "castles"!!!

Format: Hardcover
In the introduction to this book, Martha Stewart defines what she and her staff consider a "good thing". It must be uncomplicated, useful, aesthetically pleasing, interesting, pertinent, unusual, and done with materials that are easily found. I would say that about 75% of the projects in this book meet those criteria as I would apply them.
The book is well organized into seven sections: entertaining, cooking, celebrating, giving, gardening, decorating, and homekeeping. I found useful ideas in each section - some sections were better than others for me - but even the ones of lesser interest to me were still lovely to look at. At the end of the book, Stewart includes a source guide for most of the materials used in this book.
I especially liked the kitchen tips (in the cooking section); the easy instruction for handmade soaps; tole painting on tin buckets; and the organizing hints which included record-keeping.
Some of the ideas did not appeal to me at all (like gluing live ivy leaves along the edges of a tablecloth, making a linen table-sized mat, making linen basket liners, and constructing wraps for bottles) but then again, they were fun to look at!
The beautiful arrangement of this book and its photos made it worth buying.

This is my top pick for the coming season. Tackle the spring cleaning and then take Martha's advice and partake in a bit of crafty invention...Just enough to spruce up an otherwise monotonous winter cave - your HOME!
From fancy plate hangings to hanging eucalyptus in your shower, this book of quick do-it-yourself-ers is just the think for a springtime facelift and spiritual revitalizer.
Any of Martha's books are top-notch. This one just happens to be my particular favorite. Go to her website, marthastewart.com, and get tons more advice on weddings, showers/parties, babies, gardening, cooking (an awesome recipe archive), etc.
