"First published in 1996, Wiring a House has become the classic reference on residential wiring. The fifth edition is updated to the latest electrical code (2014 NEC), which will be current through 2017. The 2014 NEC has significant revisions that impact residential work, including expanded AFCI and GFCI protection in homes, new approaches to ensure the safety of photovoltaic (PV) electrical systems, new methods to distribute low voltage power, and new DC provisions designed to save energy lost in conversion from AC. In addition to the revisions necessitated by the code changes, the 5th edition will include information on inverters, lighting, and wiring for electrical vehicle chargers, as well as 70 new four-color photos. An indispensable reference for keeping pros up-to-date, Wiring a House also gives apprentices and homeowners the most current and accurate information in the most accessible form"-- Provided by publisher.

This book offers a plethora of useful information as well as complete diagrams to circuits one may see in houses new and old.

The beginning section contains highly useful content about going above minimum code and explains the reasoning behind each action.

I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more about circuits and how to save a bunch of money by doing the wiring yourself to code (and above) and getting the permits and inspections needed without having to pay an electrician too much money for simple tasks.
