            I got this book for my boyfriend for a Christmas gift this year. Although, I haven't given it to him yet, I have looked through it a great deal myself and it seems to be a fantastic resource for owning a house! I would definitely recommend it to others! I think he will love it!

            I got this as a wedding shower gift. I was not expecting the book to be so small. It doesn't seem very user friendly in this size. I will still gift it but I will make sure to add something else with it....maybe a magnifying glass.

              This makes a wonderful housewarming gift! We took a quick peak before sending it to our friends. It's full color with lots of illustrations and seems to have a ton of great info. In fact, we love it so much we may get another for ourselves.

                I gave this to a friend who just moved form NYC into a new house. It's a quick resource guide that has hundreds of topics that can come up with a new home.

                    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my Step-father. He loves tinkering, remodeling, and making their house all around better. So this book was able to give him ideas that he had never thought of or knew about.

                    Great gift!

                    I was cutting it pretty close to Christmas and they were able to ship it with in the time mentioned for the shipping I payed for.

                      I got this as a gift for my son & his girlfriend, first-time homeowners, as kind of a jokey gift, but my son was real excited about delving in and actually found some useful tips in there, so it was a great choice
