Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great book for a real DIY'er. I am a DIY'er who has used the various editions of this book for different electrical projects through the years. I would call it an Electrical Bible. 04/13/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Detailed book at a great price This is a great book that gives a lot of detail on wiring. I can say I feel a lot more confident in what I am doing around the house thanks to the guidance this book provides. In addition I purchased the book and had it delivered to a FedEx Office location. This is an awesome service because it allows me to get a good price without the hassle of waiting in line at the store. 07/14/2013
