Format: Paperback
Carol Fey has a magical talent: she can take a complicated subject and condense it into 80 easy and fun to read pages. Although this is a short, mini-text, do not be fooled; it is not a kids book: novices to experts in the HVAC field will benefit. Ms. Fey has written 3 such books; all 3 in my opinion are must-reads. Each can be easily and completely read within 2 hours. I learned more from her than the 3 semester courses I took over the course of a year in HVAC!! Probably the only book I have ever read that I wished was actually longer!! Thanks Ms. Fey; PLEASE WRITE MORE TEXTS!!!!!!!

This is THE book to own if you really know very little about electricity. You will be surprised at how much you learn after reading this easy-to-read and quick book. This book will not put you to sleep. I admired Carol Fey for making this excellent and very approachable book to electricity. Beginners will have a fun time with this book

Complete waste of time for professionals - too simplistic with no real troubleshooting for most components

This book is for elementary electrical understanding. If you don't understand basic electricity this book will help you understand the theory of electrons. Other than that it is really basic and for the more advanced technican don't buy this book!

wonderfully written, a real asset to the person that less than knowledgeable in the field. Is able to read this book and have a better grasp of the subject. The content is intriguing as well.
