    Execellent manuel

    Posted by Patricia Zottoli on Jun 28th 2018

    This is an excellent "how to" book. My husband and I both refer to this book a lot. It makes a somewhat complex subject very understandable and easy. The few times that we did have an electrical problem, we were able to quicly solve the problem by refering to the information in this book. I strongly recommend this book to both the novice and pro alike.

    Frustration Wiring

    Posted by Tony on Jun 28th 2018

    Being new to this hobby, and with little to no experiance with electricity, I had been trying to wire a reverse and was really getting frustrated, when I purchased this book, and the project was made so much easier. Was well worth the price

    There must be something better on the market than this mostly Atlas propaganda.

    Good Book

    Posted by J Parra on Jun 28th 2018

    A:though the book did serve a purpose I believe that an update with newer photes and ideas should be added. For a novice it is a beginning but there are many questions that need to be explained.
