From the Introduction:
"Whenever I started a project, I wanted to know how hard it would be for a novice like me, what tools I would need, how much I had to buy from the hardware store, how long it would take and, finally, how much it would be to just hire someone else to do it. So… I’m passing this along to you…
This book is designed for anyone who wants to improve his or her surroundings in ways small and large. It’s everything I wish I’d had when I started… You don’t have to read this book from cover to cover. Use it as your road map. This book is designed to make your life easier, save you a little money, and give you the tools you need to take care of yourself."
