Home Repair and Improvement
Home Repair and Improvement
The Home Repair and Improvement series is one of the longest and most advertised series published by Time-Life. I still remember seeing the commercials for these books starring Bob Villa hyping up how easy it is to make yourself a new kitchen or bathroom.

What they don't mention, of course, is that if you are mechanically disinclined and you live in a festering pit apartment, you won't really have much need for these. Still, though, everyone I know who's read these say that they are well done.
Collector's beware! There are several printings of these books out there, and the newest printing books are spiral bound with a hard cover over the top; they look kind of odd.
