Review: Home Maintenance for Dummies.User Review - Melissa Bower - Goodreads
The most useful part of this book to me were pages 344-354 at the end of the book. There I found lists of maintenance that the authors deemed necessary for each season. Very helpful. Everything else is fairly basic, though would be good for someone with no maintenance experience at all. Read full review
