How many blokes at Haynes does it take to change a light bulb? None. The girls have beaten them to it. They've also fixed the leaky tap, put up the shelves, tiled the kitchen and insulated the loft. Presented in a contemporary, fashionable style (not too much pink, but certainly a bit) and written in a chatty, approachable way , the Women's DIY Manual will give all the girls the information they need for general household DIY. In true Haynes style, there is clear step-by-step photography and easy-to-follow instructions, with difficulty ratings for each project.
