Then this book is for you. Because it's a different kind of DIY book, one which will take you far beyond trying to blindly follow step-by-step instructions, to where you can stop faking it, and actually make it. To actually be practical; to be handy.
Using Ian's simple R.E.L.E.A.R.N method you'll 'relearn' how you look at DIY; to see the world through 'practical eyes'. Relearn how you observe, listen, feel, and smell everything and what it all means. Plus, you'll know how and where to find the information you need to fill any gaps and create workable solutions for your DIY projects.
You'll learn how to use a few simple tools to easily transform your home, using your own head, hands, and heart to create something wonderful, fix something you treasure, maintain something you want to keep forever or build something just for fun.
There's more than 30 years of experience from a professional builder and handyman, packed into this easy to follow method which explains how handy people like Ian tackle practical tasks, (especially the new and unknown), learning 'just enough' to get the job done.
Once you experience the physical world like a handy person does, you'll think like a handy person and then you'll be able to do anything. Seriously; anything you set your mind to.Is this book right for me?
