I saw this on the shelf at Big Orange today. It took me a moment until I realized what was so disturbing. I thought that maybe this was a weird exception that had caught my eye, but a search of a couple book sites on line yields the same results.
Seems that the "Art" of the cover is more important than what the art portrays.
Hmm... not only are all them thar wires BLUE ("Excuse me, I need to purchase some 12/4 WG with all blue wires just like it shows here!") but they also show a tip-off of DIY'ers by encouraging the installation of receptacles ground-prong-up
I remember taking a "Basic Electricity" night-school course way back in high school and the instructor pointed out that, if you saw ground-prong-up receptacles, it was a fairly sure bet that it was done by a DIY'er.
Uh-oh... did I start sumthin' I shouldn't have...
No wire bias here- I'm standing on neutral ground.

If you look carefully at the slots on that plug, it looks like the image is reversed. Normally, if ground down, the neutral is on the left, and hot is right. Thus the plug's ground is done correctly (if you look at this image thru a mirror...)
