I have not read this book completely, but use it as a reference for different project aspects. I am a DIY person and this book allows me to follow best practices, meet code and do things the "right way". This book has allowed me to correct several contratcors, making me look like an expert. They now value my suggestions and follow it without question. Great book if you want to do things correctly. It is easy to read with plenty of good illustrations. Audel produces excellent books on various technical subjects. I am pleased that I got this book.
