The book doesn't really explain the requirements in the 2014 NEC for AFCI protection. If you look for the requirements, you can find some references, but, for example, the 2014 NEC requires a dishwasher, hardwired or not, to have AFCI protection. That isn't noted in the section about kitchens, the brief section about dishwashers, or in the general section about AFCI. I'm sure if someone dug deeper, he or she could find many more omissions.

It makes me not want to rely on this, and it is supposed to be a reference.

Not cheap, but provides a useful tool for added comprehension of the Code, and helps drive home the fact that any given issue is typically addressed by several disparate sections of the Code. The illustrations are handy as an aid in quickly understanding and reviewing the material. I bought it as a study guide for an inspector exam, and found it quite useful for that purpose. I think it'll be handy in explaining the code to others, as well.

This is an excellent compliment to the new NEC code book. However, each section t could have gone into greater detail. There could have been a complete book for residential, one for commercial, and one for Special locations.

This is the best NEC companion you can buy. I have the hardback for an older version but bought the Kindle edition of the new one - I was a little worried about the Kindle edition, but I'm glad I went with it - the Kindle version is more portable (obviously) and I have found it easier to read than the printed version. Whichever version you get, this is a great reference and really helps illustrate the code.

I am working with an electrician but doing the bulk of my own wiring and this has been invaluable. It isn't a how to guide but it shows what you need to do to comply with the NEC. I still use my wiring books for wiring diagrams and instructions on technique. I especially like the clarity of the pictures. There is a lot in the book that is beyond my skill/comfort level but I like reading through that part too to get an idea of what my electrician is doing. It is well organized with a concise intro at the beginning of each chapter and a summary and quiz at the end.
