From Library Journal:
A person's home is his or her castle and like its historic counterpart is subject to siege from hostile outsiders. Proper defenses can prevent costly emotional and financial losses. The editors of Better Homes & Gardens present a variety of ways to increase a home's security. There is something here for all budgets and abilities; even non-do-it-yourselfers can use this book for planning their defenses. Readers will learn how to evaluate their homes and surrounding property. Numerous means of strengthening doors and windows are shown, and alarm system types, wired and wireless, are evaluated with pointers for installation. Other topics include fire prevention, electrical safety, child-proofing, and safes for valuables. There is no information on home defense using weapons, and dogs are mentioned only in passing. This is a good, reasonably priced guide that will help readers evaluate their home and lifestyle and then determine how to increase their safety. Recommended for all public libraries.AJonathan N.
