Author(s): Aubrey Smith
Have you ever wondered how you'd survive without your wife or girlfriend (or mum!) attending to those little tasks - such as mending, sewing and cleaning - that you should, rather embarrassingly, be able to do yourself? Have you ever wished you knew these skills so that you can finally sew on a button or remove a stain on your own? Then this is the book for you!From baking bread and making jam to ironing a shirt and treating a sting, Darn It! features all the essential skills that a man should learn to make his life that little bit easier. Divided into sections on housekeeping, craft and make do, the kitchen and first aid, each task is succinctly explained and accompanied by beautifully illustrated instructions. The modern man need never again sheepishly ask for help!
