First, let me thank the sparky's who gave their input on my panel change question.FYI
I finally found a GE panel and returned the murray. Back to my subject of code book, I've
noticed homeowners and do it yourselfer's
asking code questions. There is a book called
the "Illustrated Guide to the National Electric Code" by Charles R. Miller. I
sometimes use this book because the code book can be hard to use. I paid around $45.00 for it and it's easier to understand than the code book. I wouldn't walk onto a job site with it, but its a nice break from the code book.

Stingray,

Yes, you are right - the NEC can be difficult to understand without some instruction. If you'll allow Me a plug here, We have several similar titles in the ECN store here, 1 costs a little less, and 1 is a little more than the $45 you quoted.
