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)

Just had a new garage built, now I need to put electrical power in it. This book could be really useful.

Thanks for giving this book away.  My aluminum wiring has been ok so far, but if I need to replace some it in the future it would be a great help to have this book.

This book will help me solve the puzzle that the builders put in my attic.  There are wires on top of wires and I can't tell which goes where, or where goes which, or if is really going anywhere... you know what I mean... If I win... Thanks a bundle... Saludos/Greetings...   LFM. :tickedoff:

I'm always remodeling one room or another. Either removing fans,outlets or lights. It would come in handy for backup information.

I can replace a switch or a socket and do most of my own appliance repairs. But I have to admit that what's hidding behind the walls and fuse box has always left me confused.
Please put my name in.

Awesome! I would love to win it because I am a new single homeowner and am learning how to do house wiring with all my home improvements. I work in the auto industry and my job is off and on so paying a contractor just isn't going to happen..
