“IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND HOW YOUR HOME WORKS, TRY THIS BOOK. . . . There are many homeowner guides available, but this one stands out because it is complete and easy to understand. The book does a good job of explaining homeowner basics, as well as what problems can be solved without an expensive expert.”
Los Angeles Times

“Lou Manfredini has found a way to take the intimidation out of your relationship with your home.”

Wisconsin State Journal

“Lou Manfredini is truly the ‘house-whisperer.’ He shows you how to understand your home and how it works in a whole new way. A must-have for every homebody—you’ll never look at your home in the same way again.”
Lifestyle expert and author of Susie Coelho’s Everyday Styling

“A fact-filled, easy-to-understand manual for homeowners. It’s funny and [Manfredini] tells great stories. We can’t think of a better gift for new homeowners or, better yet, somebody thinking of buying a first home.”
New Orleans Times-Picayune

“Filled with helpful illustrations. . . .This book would be a great wedding gift or even a ‘textbook’ for the college student moving into his or her first apartment.”
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
