  • Keep looking, this isn't the book,,

    By Euphoric1
    Sadly a collection of bad puns and put downs. The author takes the "for idiots" label to a whole new level at the readers expense. Useful content 5-7 %, fluff and wasted space account for the rest. If you need info on decorating, and most of us actually looking to buy a book on the subject fall into this category, you would be better off hitting Google than wasting time reading this book. Many photos, few have any bearing on the topic. Note to author: Stick to whatever else you do, writing isn't your thing.
