This is a best-of collection of 61, updated previously published columns. From sagging rafters to leaking basements, to cracked concrete, to Level-3 Idiots, they’re all here. Plus, this book includes four pages of easy-to-understand technical definitions; terms like horizontal diaphragm, out of plane, moment-resisting, and much more.

REVIEW: Writer's Digest
This book is written exactly as [the target] audience would want it. There is useful information here but there is also a lot of [other] information that is just plumb entertaining. This book is a great read for the do-it-yourselfer, the professional engineer, the professional contractor and the rank amateur.

“This is fantastic!!!!  So much incredible, usable information. Thanks so much, Tim. You are a treasure.”

Denise Dersin, Editor In Chief, Builder Magazine,
on Tim’s Article: “Save Me $2,000 Or No Soup For You!”

“I have been in the building industry for more than 20 years and I loved this book. The content is great, the writing style is relaxed yet speaks with authority — and it cracked me up on many occasions. I learned something on every page. Teaching technical lessons in a fun way is a gift that probably 3 engineers on the planet have — and Tim Garrison is one of them. Highly recommended.”
