I own Bill's other book, "The Complete Book of Locks and Locksmithing", which is the best I've seen about locksmithing. His Electronic Security book is an excellent companion book. It's easy to understand, and gives a lot of good information. The chapter on how electricity works made me understand that better than ever before. A lot of the information is basic, fundamental stuff. Over a dozen top experts contributed technical articles to the book. I highly recommend the Complete Book of Electronic Security.

The author's similarly-titled book on locksmithing is of exceptional quality. That's what makes this book's average-ness seem so much less adequate. I didn't return the book, but could have found the same information with a few Internet searches.
I doubt this book would be of much use to someone learning electronic security, although it would probably make a great resource for a high-school student writing a report for some class or other. Perhaps I'll donate my mostly-unread copy to a local library, where it can be put to good use.

I was looking for a book that would help me upgrade our home security system. This looked like the one. NOT!
To say it was superficial would be to give it too much credit. The section on installation was 3 pages long. It's chock full of fluff, nothing is covered in enough depth to be of any use.
I was hoping to find out how the pros pulled wires into walls -- what tools they used, what tricks they used, etc. NOT!
I was looking for a book that would discuss the features available in various systems and which ones were useful. NOT!
Save your money. I sent my book back, but I still had to pay the shipping both ways.
I was so disappointed!

Title Should Be Electronic Security Business Plan March 19 2008
By Bill Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There is far more information (general anyway) about starting a business than about electronic security systems. Many chapters devoted to writing a resume and advertizing. Some generic info on devices and some references to ohms law. A lot of info on picking the right drill but little on picking the right volt meter. Troubleshooting, basically this was about interviewing the "client" to determine what the problem is?
A great read April 29 2013
