The purpose of this page is to compare the topics that wikiHow has versus other How-to guides. This resource will later expand to include books, such as Physician's Home Remedies and the Joy of Cooking.

While I am starting this project initially, anyone should feel free to suggest books or add comparisons using their own research. This page can also be used to create ideas as to what kind of articles we need at wikiHow.
