Massive home reference book is the perfect tool for first-time homeowners

LAS VEGAS, NV (May 6, 2014) — It’s BIG, Baby. BLACK+DECKER and Cool Springs Press introduce The Book of Home How‐To which is no modest manual or wispy webpage. You don’t stream it or podcast it or text it. You want to download this monster? Better get yourself a forklift, because this is one voluminous volume. It weighs nearly six pounds and has 600 hundred paper pages that require no batteries, no bandwidth and no wait time.

The Book of Home How‐To is the ultimate fully loaded, ridiculously huge reference book for every home project you can dream of. All the most common tasks around your home are covered, including electrical, plumbing, flooring, walls, windows and doors, cabinetry, insulating, heating and cooling, roofing and siding and more.

But the good news doesn't stop there; this book is designed to reflect the way we search for information today. You won’t find chapters or long, boring introductions. This book is an A‐to‐Z encyclopedia with precise how‐to instructions and clear photos packed onto every page. With an expanded index, a list of keywords, and a simple, alphabetical strategy for organizing the information, you won’t spend precious time wading through stuff you don’t need to know.

To preview a copy of BLACK+DECKER The Book of Home How‐To, visit Booth #7261 at the 2014 National Hardware Show.
