This book is for free, no strings attached. It sold thousands of copies and it was my first book. I am happy to share this and hope that it will be of some help.

Please remember that it was based upon the 1990 NEC. thanks

Thank You!

I still have a copy of your book over the visor of my car. It was a good sanity check when I thought I was forgetting something on an inspection. It made me a better inspector.
Have you updated it to the 2011?

No, I have not updated this edition, however you can find the larger version that was developed for the 1999 NEC on the web site publications list with the same title.

I can remember when I wrote this 1st edition, I used a Mac and typed it in ALL CAPS and was told that was not the way to write anything!

So not knowing how to do the change for sentence case I started all over again, it took me eleven hours. Later I had someone who knew how to set up the word file, prepare it for me then it was published. I will develop audio files for each chapter soon. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have that book and your other book with the red cover. I read them over again every now and then.
