Never Hang Wallpaper With Your Wife is a humorous look, from a guy's point of view, at home renovations, decorating and home repairs, and how it can affect the relationship of a husband and wife. It is liberally sprinkled with handy tips, do-it-yourself information and laced with humorous anecdotes.

Hammar, now retired and living in British Columbia, was one of Canada's earliest home improvement experts. The experience and knowledge, gained over fifty-two years in the field, is shared with you in a way sure to make you laugh as you learn. The information in this book is not only from Hammar's experiences but also from that of friends, family and his audiences on radio, television and at home shows. There are dozens of innovative handy tips and ideas on how-to and how-not-to. Many of these tips are accompanied by clear illustrations of the project.

When asked if he really is an expert in the DIY field he says, ""According to one dictionary an expert is 'one who has great knowledge or skill in a particular area'"". But, in the words of my former wife, ""In the case of Michael Hammar, I think an expert is a person who has done something wrong so many times, has finally found the right way, and now wants to be paid to tell people about it"".

This book is funny and, at the same time, very informative with down to earth stories and ideas. Avoid the ""how-not-to"" frustrations and chuckle at one man's struggle with home repairs and renovations. See how one ""guy"" deals with the ""boss"" on the job.

You will surely identify with some of Hammar's experiences and laugh as you learn."
