This book has been written for the man who wants to learn how to install electrical wiring, so that the finished job will be both practical and safe.

I ordered it from my wife's bookstore and have been looking through it. It is an excellent resource. I am relatively comfortable with DIY projects, but with electricity there is always that fear that I might somehow wire the utility feed directly to
This book, in it's 43rd edition(!), walks you through various wiring projects and considerations with information from the 2011 electrical code.
