Review Text

Perhaps the most ambitious single-volume undertaking for the home, this hefty tome boasts over 10,000 useful tips aimed at making hectic modern life less stressful. The presentation is simple and extremely clear, using photographs, explanatory drawings, charts and check lists to facilitate understanding. Divided into four main sections - Organizing Your Household, Decorating, Cooking and Gardening - the hundreds of subsections cover areas as diverse as first aid and protecting your garden furniture.
