If you need a handy general repair guide geared towards the modern DIYer, we've heard good reviews on this one. From the author's book descripton:
"This is NOT your father's home repair book! And it's not your husband's, your brother's, your boyfriend's, or the guy's next door. Dare to Repair is a do-it-herself book for every woman who would rather be self-reliant than rely on a super or contractor. No matter the depth of your pockets or the size of your home, a toilet will get clogged, a circuit breaker will trip, and a smoke detector will stop working. It's up to you how you'll deal with them -- live in denial, pay the piper, or get real and do it yourself."
You can find it on Amazon here for around $15, or check your local bookstore!
