In the bestselling The Experts’ Guide to 100 Things Everyone Should Know How to Do, the world’s most knowledgeable experts provided unparalleled insights into mastering the little things in life that are often invariably the hardest to accomplish. Now, Experts’ Guide series creator Samantha Ettus once again brings together 100 renowned experts who share their proficiency and know-how to show you not only how to make your home more beautiful, but how to live more happily in it.

The first book to join three home-related genres—home improvement, self-help, and interior design—The Experts’ Guide to Life at Home is the ultimate must-have guide to mastering your domain. Divided into six sections (To Nest, To Protect, To Improve, To Beautify, To Relax, and To Enjoy), 100 of the world’s leading experts provide consummate insight into how to successfully accomplish everything from properly folding fitted sheets, as taught by the world’s leading computational origami expert; to hanging holiday lights, with guidance from the man who decorates the world-renowned Rockefeller Center Christmas tree; to carving a turkey, with instructions from Oprah’s personal chef.

The experts include:

• Al Roker, on how to Create a Family Barbecue

• Senator Dianne Feinstein, on how to Prevent Identity Theft

• Joy Browne, on how to Compromise

• Ina Garten, on how to Host a Dinner Party

• Harvey Karp, on how to Discipline Your Children

• Susie Coelho, on how to Make the Most of a Spare Room

• Jorge Cruise, on how to Incorporate Fitness into Your Daily Life

• Alexandra Stoddard, on how to Lead a Happy Life

The contributors to The Experts’ Guide to Life at Home range from instantly recognizable names like Rachael Ray and Leeza Gibbons to industry leaders like the CEO of AARP and the co-creators of the hit TV show The Amazing Race. All have been chosen for inclusion because they are at the very top of their profession, be it finance, cooking, relationships, medicine, security, or even building the perfect snowman.

From the bedroom to the kitchen, the kid’s room to the basement, the backyard to the front yard, The Experts’ Guide to Life at Home makes it easy to read a little and learn a lot about making the most of your home.
