How-to Book That Could Make You Money Revieweed

Remodeling: Buying and Updating a Foreclosure By Joy V. Smith
Author's Web site:
Genre: Nonfiction: Self-helpISBN: 978-1-4524-3318-9

Reviewed by Vincent Miskell  originally for Smashwords and Amazon.
Joy Smith’s Remodeling ebook takes the reader on an upbeat odyssey of house selling, house buying, and house remodeling (or perhaps house rebuilding). Her style is lively, detailed, and, at times, quite amusing. She integrates the details (setbacks, struggles, and mini-triumphs) of her efforts, along with the help of a small army of contractors, plumbers, and others, so well into her virtually day-by-day narrative that we speed happily along with her toward the wonderful ending that we know must lie just ahead. Anyone thinking about remodeling (really transforming) a fixer-up house (that might also need extensive landscaping) will gain insight, courage, and many, many practical tips from her first-person reports that begin in January and end in June when her beautiful home finally becomes ready for its house warming party.
