4The Title Says It All
By Dora
All the things. This book covers all the things. There is some repetition, and it can be a bit bogged down, but chances are - if you have a question about a life-issue (how do I remove those stubborn stains - what should I look for when purchasing x, y, and/or z), this book has the answer. Nailed it. I've had this book for about a year now and it has proven itself worthy beyond its purchase price.

3I should have known that most of the information was out of date
By Amazon Customer
Since this was made in England though, it was actually an entertaining read. I didn't find much of use in so far as actual trade secrets though.
