This practical, fun book for easy home repairs by the experts at Popular Mechanics now flaunts a fabulously funky cover featuring our favorite go-to material: duct tape!

This guide gives anyone the basics to tackle those frustrating quandaries that crop up in the house: plumbing problems, appliance failures, computer and electronics breakdowns, pest infestations, and furniture in need of renewal. The predicaments range from the serious to the merely annoying, but every one is cause for concern. So, whether the issue is a fast repair for a running toilet or leaking pipe, or a simple, inexpensive way to stop deer from pillaging the garden, it's all in here.
