By this home electrical repair book, he seems to want to empower the public with a practical education in a subject too often shrouded in cautions, as if only those initiated into a secret brotherhood can understand what they are dealing with.

"I was going to donate to you, but decided to buy your book instead. I don't run into these problems very often, and probably won't be able to find your website again. A good book will last a lifetime." -John, KY

"I'm new to electricity but an avid DIYer, and your site has helped me to understand FAR more about how the electrical system works in my home. It is straight-forward and simple enough for even we 'electrically-challenged' to grasp quickly, while providing the answers to many otherwise confusing situations we encounter every day. You should consider writing a book!"

"I've read just about all the books out there and you'd think each of the authors had never seen anything wired more than one way; clearly you know better than that!" -Leslie
