I’m lucky enough to have a very handy husband,if I need something done around the house he can usually find a way to get it done, one way or another. But… even my man can sometimes struggle with certain honey-do-list items. It’s truly not a crime to read the instructions! Try telling Super Genius that though! Sometimes he reminds me of “Tim the Tool Man”
Al: Didn’t you study the manual at all? Tim: A real man doesn’t need a manual. ~IMD Quote from Home Improvement
Umm… please, just read the instructions! Help your guy out and give him a great Father’s Day (or birthday, Christmas, etc.) gift this year so he can shine – The Real Man’s Guide to Fixin’ Stuff – How to repair anything you need (or just want) to know how to fix book by Nick Harper. Whew that’s a mouthful! The how-to’s however, are short and to the point. They cover everything form basic carpet stain removal to tire changing.
Description from press release: Squeaky floor board driving you crazy, have no hope left for a leaky shower or are you facing the worst problem of all… a weak vacuum? Real men know how to fix stuff. So if you don’t know a light socket from a socket wrench, what do you do? The Real Man’s Guide to Fixin’ Stuff by Nick Harper, is the ultimate guide for guys on how to fix all those ordinary things that break everyday and no one seems to know what to do with. No longer will there be anything you own that you’ll think isn’t worth fixing or that it’s cheaper to buy a new one.
Leaky faucets, wobbly chairs, burnt pans and clogged gutters could be a thing of the past once your man feels more confident in his ability to fix ’em! Super G. read some of the book and said there was “a lot of cool stuff in it.” He said the directions made sense and he liked how easy it was to look things up. I agree. With 106 How-To’s listed in the Index I think the book is a great way for any man, married or single, to learn more about home upkeep and simple fixes to everyday glitches.
How to Enter: (mandatory) Leave me a comment telling me if you have a handyman, or a funny tale about one of his fix it flops. Mine once drilled a hole in the casing of our BRAND NEW air conditioner “to let the condensation out” and the drill slipped and went straight into the unit and, you guessed it, killed it. Yep, he really did. :) Shh, I’ll never tell if you don’t!
