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.
