overpriced and disappointing Really do not bother with this book. I have no idea what the Beeb were thinking when they agreed this for publication. It’s very small and the content is both scant and poor. The illustrations are poorly done monochrome prints. Its not a good souvenir of the series and most unhelpful if you are hoping to do some restoring and repairing yourself. For the price it should be a glossy production with photos, larger and better written. A better book is the one reccommended below. Its not new but has…
Very basic This book proved to be a total disappointment. I love watching the T.V. program, and the title and description implied that it would contain a lot of useful tips and information about restoration work. On receipt I was very disheartened to discover no step by step “How to do” photographs or indeed diagrams just generic illustrations of various basic tools. The guidance is VERY basic which would perhaps be of use to somebody who has never attempted ANY D.I.Y.. There are very basic to the extreme…
NOT what it says it is. The “blurb” for this book would have you believe it is a kind of “instruction manual” for fixing things around the house. It isn’t. If you’re a fan of the TV show and want to re-live some of their restorations, great. If you want to know how to fix a broken chair, buy a PROPER DIY manual. This does give some very basic tips, but won’t actually explain how to fix anything.
