This is an odd little book in that I think tries to talk to too many audiences simultaneously. Novice Do It Yourself explanations are intermixed with pro-to-pro advice. As a fairly advanced DIY reader I found enough information to make it a worthwhile experience hitting topics I where I felt I had thinner knowledge.
