I really, really like The Owner-Builder Book (not to mention the amazing website) for a variety of reasons, but mostly because it gives people information they need and the confidence that they can build their own custom home. Experts in all fields try to convince us that they have an informational advantage and use it to play on our fears, make us feel incompetent, cheap or even stupid.
