This material has been such a help to my clients, and now that it is available as an e-book, it will only make it more useful and more widely available. Thank you for making this possible.

That's great to hear, Robert! After many years, we're very happy to offer How to Operate Your Home as an online eBook. Thanks again!

Great gift

Great info for home buyers. We include in our real estate packets

Revised cover

I really like the revised cover - 5 stars, except the "BOOK PROVIDED BY:" block is now smaller. My preprinted 2x4 labels don't quite fit as well as the old block. Looks a little tacky - 3 stars

Extremely valuable

Love these illustrations as an addition to our reports to help our clients better understand their home. Also hope to use them when I start writing articles to help clients manage minor issues that always come up in home ownership.

A "Must Have" for first time home buyers

I give each first time homebuyer, as well as re-peat buyers with "no-clue" of home systems and maintenance a copy of this book. It truly heads off many phone calls from buyers once they close and move into their home as most issues are nicely described in the book. The book is well written, thought out, and bound, and is a nice "gift" from a home inspector! I have professional labels printed and place them on the rear cover of the book so clients know how to access me if needed.

How to Operate Your Home Books are Great!

I have been giving one of Tom’s books to all my home inspector customers for the last 7 years and they are always very well received. Some people can’t wait for me to give them their book at the end of the inspection!

Great addition to any home inspection

I give this book to every client after the home inspection and I get a lot of positive feedback from buyers and realtors, as well.

Great gift for my buyers, they all appreciate receiving one at closing. Most, never owned homes before

How to Operate Your Home - Standard Edition

These books are all the buzz. Clients feel overwhelmed when I give them this book at the beginning if an inspection. You can see the relief and the sigh from first time home buyers as though someone just gave them the playbook for the opposing team.

Excellent info source

I am a home inspector and I give this booklet as a gift to all of my clients. It is well received and appreciated by most clients. I believe it is an excellent resource for home owners to use as a maintenance schedule and basic info guide. No one knows how to maintain a home until they are taught. This quick and affordable guide really fits the bill.

I use the "My Home" books for Realtors whom simply don't get it, when it comes to understanding what is in my inspection reports. Some times they have been told absolutely ridiculous explanations by other inspectors or contractors trying to cover their shoddy or incorerect work. The "My House" books helps to put everything into perspective.

I provide each client I perform a home inspection for a copy of this book in their inspection binder.
