This is a wonderful guide book, Wiring Simplified by Frederic P Hartwell, Herbert P. Richter, and W.C. Schwan! Of course, it's full of up-to-date information, being the 45th edition. This book is packed with guidance to lamps, fire alarms, and many other households electrically wired installments. You really can't go wrong when you have this accompanying you in fixing or replacing. It's a lifesaver!

There are tips to prevent any accidents, well more like safe guidance that you need to do when re

The best book I have read about electricity in U.S. buildings. This book got me started and constitutes the fundamental training text for anyone working with me. Not glossy with big photograph-covered pages, but the illustrations are enough and the text is 1000x more valuable than what's in glossy Home Improvement Store texts (although you can buy this at some Home Improvement stores).

Buy this, and the Klein cable/wire combo stripper tool before installing more than a single location in any DIY

I have gradually come to realize the limitations of the Internet for providing information on technical subjects. Yes, a vast volume of information is available for free. But there is so much chaff that often it is hard to find accurate answers. When and if you do find accurate answers, they are surrounded by a cloud of invasive ads and other devices meant to distract you, which have the effect of making it difficult to view and comprehend the information as a whole (not to mention the constant ...more

I COULD NOT WRITE A BETTER REVIEW THAN THE AUTHOR:
PREFACE
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. The installation will comply with the National Electrical Code. Then the finished job will be acceptable to electrical inspectors, power companies, and others having juris-
diction in the matter. Electrical wiring cannot be learned by skimming through this or any other book for 15 minutes, b

Recommends it for: people who own old houses

So I purchased this old house with kind of funny wiring - GFCIs where they're sort of superfluous and non-tripping GFCIs where they are not needed, hot wire in the wrong place, the mysterious second panel - and my dad recommended I pick up this book. 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 is a great book for anyone who wants to tackle the job of wiring or re-wiring their home. It starts with safety practices and covers everything you need to know, though you may find yourself needing to consult additional resources to get all the information you need. The first Wiring Simplified was published in 1932 and the various authors, through the years, have maintained good practice in wiring and installation while updating each edition to current NEC standards and specifications. I'd ...more

This book, in it's 43rd edition(!), walks you through various wiring projects and considerations with information from the 2011 electrical code. This will be our main reference material as we go to wire our house, and if anybody is considering any electrical project, this book seems like the one to have at your side.
