Summary: Helped us from start to finish!
Rating: 5

We bought this book to help us "finish" our garage with insulation and drywall. This book was great. We were first timers to this type of project. The book was very informative from choosing our supplies, tools we would need, all the way to taping and finishing off the joints. We were able to complete our project from start to finish with just the help of this book.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone taking on a drywall project for the first time.

Summary: 3rd Edition is also a great addition to your library
Rating: 5

I noticed that the 3rd Edition of this book has a copyright date of 2008 and the cover of the book notes that it is completely revised and updated. Any review written before 2008 is almost certainly for the second edition. The 3rd edition is a reasonably hefty 210 pages of content; it is printed on nice paper, is nicely organised, and has an index.

I am an experienced do-it-yourselfer and bought this book to get an update on the latest corner beads made of vinyl and some made of metal and paper. I also wanted a little more knowledge on available types of drywall and joint compounds.

This book is very comprehensive and covers drywall techniques, tools, and materials. Consistent with the reviews of the earlier edition(s), this book focuses almost exclusively on drywall (which is also consistent with its title). There is a section on soundproofing which I believe is very useful.

I would rate this book as a must read for anyone who wishes to learn about drywall techniques. The text is clear and there are many photographs to illustrate the points that the author is making.

I would have liked it if the author covered skip troweling but this is a little tricky to learn from a book (so this omission did not bother me much).

I already had a good amount of knowledge about drywall and this book has given me another step up in knowledge. I am completely satisfied with this book.

Summary: Book is very helpful - even for advanced dry wall work.
Rating: 4

I found this book to be more helpful than I expected. Having done a lot of rough drywall years ago I wasn't sure how much I would learn, but I was surprised at how many useful tips I found while grazing through the book.

The book is laid out in a well-organized and easy-to-read manner.

The author not only explains how to hang, fasten, tape, sand and texture drywall - but provides very practical insights on how to put up and coat drywall in an efficient and effective manner. For those who do not know what tools to buy or use - the Author introduces different products throughout the book - providing practical information on to use them without turning the book into an advertisement.

I think there is probably something in this book for everyone. For example: Did you know that drywall has fibers that make it stronger if fastened across wall studs than if fastened along the wall studs?

It's inexpensive and informative.

Summary: Read the reviews! This book is great!
Rating: 5

I have zero home remodeling experience but after reading this book have done an awesome job hanging my drywall. You would never know I did the work my self. And I'm a woman. The biggest help (after reading the book) was buying a drywall hoist as well as other tools listed in the book. I was able to complete the entire job, ceilings too, completely unassisted. And I have 10' walls.

Summary: Great book with good advice on proper installation
Rating: 4

I bought this book because I decided I needed some insight into proper drywall installation techniques as I felt I had done a poor job repairing part of a wall. I am impressed with the amount of information it contains and found some good advice to help me re-do my repair job correctly. The section in the book on texturing wallboard was useful, as I need to repair another wall where there had once been wallpaper.
