Time/Life published a series of books called "Fix It Yourself" back in the 80s. When I bought my first house I picked up the whole set at either Goodwill or a garage sale. I found them to be pretty helpful many years ago, but I haven't cracked them open in a long time. I mostly look things up on Google these days.

With that said a coworker of mine who did construction when he was in college recommended the book "Working Alone". I did find some useful info there for my woodshed project.

Yeah, Google or You Tube is where I look first, but I'll check out the titles you mentioned.

I am looking for a good physical back up against a scenario where there is - for whatever reason - an extended power outage.
