Book News Annotation:
In this update of the 2007 edition of an industry standard since first published in 1996, a master electrician/plumber incorporates the latest wiring code changes. For example, there are new rules regarding marking the white insulated wire in switch legs, and bathroom receptacles. Cauldwell applies his "above code" ethic in this well-illustrated guide that covers the basics of electricity and tools of the trade, to the electrical system from the service entrance to surge protection and standby generators.
