Not worth reading - there's not enough information in here about actual home repair or renovation to be useful. It's just a bunch of brief musings, reprints of previously published magazine pieces, randomly categorized under the headings Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. Most of the anecdotes will be familiar to readers of Sheetrock & Shellac: A Thinking Person's Guide to the Art and Science of Home Improvement and The Walls Around Us: The Thinking Person's Guide to How a House Works.
