From Builders Booksource: Unlike most of Taunton's earlier books, the new "Build like a Pro..." series is specifically targeted to a more basic level of "do-it-yourselfer". We normally consider Taunton's books to be for the professional and "dedicated amateur" , this series simplifies and introduces basic issues to bring a rank beginner up to speed. So, great stuff, but for the more seasoned you might look at other titles on similar topics from Taunton.
