If you ever wondered what goes on inside the walls of you house or down in the mechanical room in your basement, this book will answer your questions. With clear, easy to understand drawings and explanations you will gain a good basic understanding of all things mechanical or electrical. You still may not be able to fix anything but at least you will have some idea of where the problems are and be able to talk to the repair guy with some degree of understanding and perhaps avert disaster until they arrive. Even if things are going well with your home, this is a fascinating and informative read. I have referred to this book on many occasions
And certainly consider it money well spent. One of the better books of this genre that I have found.
