BBC - Trade Secrets (Everything You'll Ever Need To Know . . . ) (2nd Hand Paperback)
. . . about everything.
One of BBC2's conspicuous successes of the last four years has been the ten minute slot called Trade Secrets created and produced by Maverick Television.
Each week seasoned professionals from key occupations give hints and tips developed through a lifetime of doing the job.
Trade Secrets contains over 3,000 hints, tips, and shortcuts on every subject under the sun - from cleaning kettles to fixing your car - gleaned from professionals developed or discovered during their long working lives.
Each series of tips is divided into subjects, and there is a comprehensive cross-referenced index. Each tip uses material everyone has around the house and either saves money or costs nothing.

"Its basically a book full of little gems of wisdom broken down in a series of sub groups so you have an group set by activity - say gardeners, then it would be further divided down to a common set of tasks for example seedlings - with each group then having a number of helpful handy comment and suggestions. As for the actual advice or suggestions imparted - that varies, from common sense, to facts I already knew (but its always reassuring to see them re-affirmed) to down right surprising. There seems to be something for everyone here." - Goodreads Review.
