Here's the completely revised and updated version of the classic reference book on home wiring for homeowners, electricians, and apprentices.

Since it was first published in 1996, Wiring a House has become the standard reference on residential wiring -- with its first two editions selling over 100,000 copies.

Updated to the latest National Electrical Code, this fourth edition features revised information on backup generators, AFCIs, GFCIs, tools, and room-by-room wiring -- plus a new chapter on home security wiring.

As part of our For Pros By Pros series, this valuable reference is an indispensable tool for professionals who need to stay up to date. And it also gives apprentices and homeowners a quick, accessible way to find the most current, accurate information.

For anyone who wants to wire a house, here's a complete, easy-to-understand guide that takes you through every step in detail -- written by a master electrician with over 25 years of experience.
