Editorial Reviews

Noting that many electrical contractors go by rule of thumb "recipes," which fit the regulations for projects they are used to, this work provides design recipes for a host of situations which may be unfamiliar in order to help contractors shorten the time needed to pore over the regulations. The material is relevant to British electrical standards. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
