not what i expected
on April 28, 2011
I was expecting something totally different. I expected a book full of info on how to actually do the work. I.E: be a handyman. Like how do you measure and install a sink, line-up a brick wall, wire a plug, solder some pipes ... instead the book if choke full of references. In retrospect it makes sense since they are the boys who make the excellent pocket ref book.
If you need to know the load capacity of a bolt or calculate the speed of a flow of water thru a pipe, this is the book for you. It's not a bad book by any means, it just has a slightly misleading title!
