Great Book

January 14, 2022 By: Luke Herring, P1 Group (Meriden, United States)

Comments
Excellent reference to have for most electrical situations and comes with great tabs.

Cons
There are a few sections that really don't need to be in the book. Namely the safety section, which is mostly filled with common sense knowledge or just information that you're never going to need to reference, the history section, and the common electrical tools section aside from the information on testers. In place of those pages, it would be nice to have the common symbols for blueprints expanded. Electrical symbols aren't the only symbols I need to identify and they're already the ones I'm the most familiar with. Also, the numbers for three phase circuits could be expanded. It's a lot faster to reference a chart when doing a lot of circuits at once and it's not uncommon for them to go into the hundreds. The last thing would be the durability of the book. Hauling it around on a jobsite puts a lot of wear on it quickly. I would be very interested in buying a compact, durable carrying case if it was offered.
 

Great resource

A Handy Reference

The book is laid out well with quality illustrations and the charts are easy to read. The paper seems to be of a better quality than other spiral-bound electrical references.

Best reference book on earth

November 29, 2021 By: Alex Vidrine, Sirius Technologies (Eunice, United States)

Comments
Absolutely the best and most thorough electrical reference book I've ever found, seen, heard of, or purchased. It has literally every thing you could possibly think of. I loved it so much I went ahead and bought the Fastener one and Engineering one as well and as in thought, those did not disappoint either

Pros
Thorough information on every topic and sub topic

Cons
Wish yall also offered a slightly bigger size for the shop or to keep in truck
 

This is the most useful tool I own as an electrical engineer

I truly can’t believe something so perfect is able to exist in this world. It’s like a vibrant double-rainbow, a chance encounter with a newborn dolphin, or a fox that plays peek-a-boo with you through the kitchen window; it’s one of a handful of rare miracles that a single person will get to experience in their lifetime. I cherish this book and take it with me everywhere, whether that’s at my desk, in the field, or tucked underneath my pillow for better dreams.

Pros
In all honesty, I love this book. It has every formula I have ever needed to use as a working engineer. I reference the conductor ampacity, motor FLA, and formulae sections very frequently, with occasional flipping around for other useful power and lighting information. It fits perfectly in my back pocket while still being incredibly readable. The bookmark tabs help you personalize the book to your specific engineering needs, and the pages are very hard to damage, making it a great pocket reference in the shop or the field. This is hands down the best electrical engineering all-in-one reference I have ever seen in my life.

Cons
My one and ONLY gripe with this book is the spiral binding; the pages tend to get caught around it and come loose from the binding. A continuous spiral binding, rather than having the ends disconnected, could solve this problem.

Great book

Pros
This book has everything an electrician, or anyone that works in the electrical field. As the shop supervisor I have ordered a couple and intend on ordering more.

Cons
The only con I can think of is that the book is too small for what is contains, I would love to have a larger version.

Really good tool!

July 30, 2021 By: Daniel Langlois (Winter Haven, United States)

Comments
The book covers just about everything an electrician may have to "google" on the job, but doesn't require batteries or network connection

Pros
Well organized, the sticker tab page was a nice little surprise, like finding the toy at the bottom of the cereal box as a kid.

Cons
Paper a little thin, but to keep the book to pocket size, understandable.
 

Invaluable

As a Building tech I have to know a little bit about all the trades to keep everything running smoothly. This book helps me be safe and knowledgeable about electrical work.

Sturdy book with textured pages

Cons
Not enough history and background.
 

Fantastic Book

July 12, 2021 By: Mark Bomboy, Oklahoma Historical Society (Newalla, United States)

Comments
This is a great book. I’m never quite sure what will come next with my job. So I’m always collecting reference books. This is a must have book if you’ll be doing anything electrical.

Pros
Everything is easily accessible. Personalization is simple with the included page tabs so you can find the pages you frequently use.

Cons
It could use a bit more info on circuits, like op amps and timers.
 

Good reference

June 29, 2021 By: Bryce Billing (Melbourne, Australia)

Comments
Good reference material

Pros
Great charts and reference material, references relevant sections of standards, seems to have everything you need

Cons
Could use a staggered index, rather than self applicated stickers which will get damaged.
Purchased in June 2021 and it still is not updated for new AS/NZS 3000:2018 standard, so all numbers need to be double checked, which is disappointing.
