I don't like the McGraw Hill's handbook. I found quite a few places in the one that Ihad bought that was not updated to reflect some of the more important code changes. I also don't like the graphics. I personally will never buy it again.

I have an older (1990) version of McGraw-Hill's Handbook. One advantage of theirs is that it does not reprint the NEC text and therefore the explanations were much more detailed. This may not still be the case with the current editions. That being said, I have had an NFPA version every cycle since about '87 and have always chosen them.

I didn't like writing what I wrote, since I know Pierre (who I consider a freind) is involved with it, but unfortunatley, I was quite disappointed with the book. I also think the book needs an overhaul, mainly in the graphics, which in my opinion don't help the reader much.
