How-to books have long been a staple of the publishing industry, and it’s easy to see why: from time to time we all need to learn how to do something, and a good how-to book is a great place to start. There are how-to books on every possible subject you can think of, from woodworking, to self defense, to writing how-to books.

And with so many how-to books available, it should be no surprise that some are a bit more helpful than others.
