Author Rick MacKayabout this book: This hilarious field guide is a great gift for your favorite DIY'er, Handyman, or Trade Professional. Everything that drives homeowners and contractors crazy, and strategies to avoid them, is detailed in the only home improvement book that tells it like it really is! It will save everyone on the job time, money, and hassles. Who doesn't want that? Written for laughs by a pro with 40+ years in the business, it's all true.


• "Author Rick MacKay is a talented storyteller, each chapter is well-crafted. For all you HGTV watchers, try READING these episodes!" — Chart Well Jan

• "This book is a trade school course on the terms of home contracting and interior decoration, only readable. The DIY world needs some truth telling--this book is a one tome intervention." — Amar Ventris

Some humorous columns published in "Fine Homebuilding" magazine were the start of this tell-all book. After excusing himself from a 4 year college, MacKay finished up his education at a trade school and began remodeling homes for a world famous sex-change surgeon. After 30 years in the field, working in millionaire's penthouses one month, remodeling skid-row bars the next, and everything in between, he locked himself in his office for 4 months, organized his notes, and wrote "Psychotic Remodeling: True Stories From A Serial Remodeler." A percentage of the profits of this book are donated to Habitat for Humanity.
