Do It Herself by JoAnne Liebeler covers "everything you need to know to fix, maintain, and improve your home". This book describes the different systems in a house, comparing many of them to similar systems in a body. For instance, it compares the electrical system to the nervous system. Then having set a framework for understanding the building, it covers many common repair and maintenance tasks.
