Sweet !
I could use this to add some lighting to my family room, add some GFCI circuits, and add safety night lighting for the house perimeter.  I can't afford an electrician right now ...

I have made many wiring mistakes in my day and learned alot from those mistakes.  This book would be a big help.  I'm one of those guys who does not like to hire anybody, when I can screw it up myself.

I would love to win this book because I am working on buying an as is home that I plan to turn into a health and fitness facility in my neighborhood.

I know the house will need all sorts of repairs because I want it to be somewhat of a shell.  I used this website to fix my side-by-side refrigerator so I know anything come from ApplianceJunk.com is well worth reading.

I love reading and fixing things.  My husband calls me Mrs. Fixit.  As a matter of fact, when female family members come to him to do things (he's in construction and can fix just about anything but he does not like to mess with wires...I do) he tells them no because I can do it.  He tells them to read up on it like "Sherry" does and you'll learn it.

Good luck  O0 to whoever wins the book.

Thanks again for another wonderful offer.

Best regards,
Sherry L.  Poole ;)

I need to change a light bulb all by myself.  Perhaps this book will help.

It would at least help me figure it out.......... ;D

I teach a basic electrical engineering course at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and this book could be used as a text for the series on practical applications of electrical engineering.

Thank you for the chance to win the book.  I donít have much knowledge of wiring and am currently leaning from friends.  My house flooded with 3-4 feet of water during the storm last year and itís still under construction.  I have a lot of things to lean.

We home school our two sons age 13 and 11.  They are very interested in anything electrical or mechanical and help with all of the workover projects in our old house and full size Burlington Northern Caboose (yes, we are restoring a real caboose).  This book should prove to be a very good hands on teaching tool.  Thanks for the chance to get a copy.

It would be nice to know that what I've been doing all these years is within code or not.  :D
My philosophies:

If it ain't broke, don't fix it and When all else fails RTFM (read the "funny" manual)
