Publisher Comments:

Revised and completely updated for the 2008 National Electric Code, this small manual continues its 75-year history of demonstrating how to install safe, convenient, and economical wiring. Encouraging readers to tackle jobs small and large, the guide covers everything from repairing a table lamp to wiring a whole house. After introducing the basics—standards, codes, safety practices, and an overview of how electricity is measured and delivered—chapters show how to design a layout for lights, switches, and receptacles; run a line from a utility pole; install wires, circuits, and grounds; and handle special projects such as replacing old wiring and wiring detached garages and accessory buildings.

Dreece, April 2, 2011 (view all comments by Dreece)
I was just out of the service and a husband with a daughter. I am fairly handy and needed to get some electrical work done around the house. I stumbled on this book (I believe it was around .75 cents back then). I religiously read the chapters and even though I had a health fear of electricity, I persevered. With familiarity the fear of electral shock lessened and disappeared. I was in college studying Horticulture in Southern California. I was asked by a professor if I wanted to work the Christmas vacation at his wholesale nursery. He was in the process of installing bottom heat to his new planting beds (stimulates root formation) but he had me building new greenhouses. I noticed that although he had finished installing the plumbing and electrical to the planting beds, the control panel where it all had to be hooked-up was untouched. I asked him about it and he said he was waiting for the electrician to fit him into his schedule. I mentioned that I knew something of electrical wiring and he was tickled to think that he could get his bottom heat going soon! I went to work and thanks to the information in Richter's Guide, I wired the whole nurseries new bottom heat beds in fine style. Years later at trade shows where he and I would cross paths, he would remember how I had wired up his beds back in the day.

Read this book. Do the things it asks you to do, go slow, and once you understand the principles involved = along with the safety precautions, you will be amazed at how simple something that seemed so alien and complicated as electrical work can be.
