With father's day approaching I thought I would post this recent project for Perseus Books.



If you need to know how to fix a leaky faucet, repair a flat tire, replace a broken fan belt or paint a room without painting yourself into a corner, and your dad is not there, unavailable, or keeps putting you on hold, then this book is what you need.  It's aimed at the kids moving away from home. So it's not really a father's day item, but something dad might give as a 'parting' gift. (Just before he breaks out the scotch to celebrate his new-found freedom).

This book has a unique feature.  Open up the end flaps, pull out the perforated handles, and you have a faux toolbox!

You can check out the author's (Steve Elliot) blog, chock-a-block full of handy tips and regular-guy anecdotes.
