Everyone watches those house related shows on HGTV and some of the other networks. I'm fond of "Renovation Realities", which shows how people crack under the stress of having to remodel part of their home within a constrained amount of time. Nothing tests a couple's mettle like a home repair project. My point is, most people you run into have seen some of these shows and probably likes watching them.
It's a mistake to watch a season of a television series and then decide to go out and try it yourself. At least not without making sure you have done your own diligent research. That's where an ebook like this comes in handy; you can access it from anywhere and you don't have to carry it around. And, unless you print it out, you're not going to relegate it to bathroom reading.
Come to think of it, my family has had real estate for as long as I can remember and I'll bet my parents and I could sit down and write an ebook on what to do and what not to do. In the meantime, you can click this link if you would like to see the guide I think is best.
