The most complete guide to the grounding and earthing requirements of the 2014 National Electrical Code

“If you are responsible for delivering power, or if you just want to know what’s going on beneath your feet, read these pages; ground your circuit as Stockin suggests, and you can close the master switch with confidence.” ―Bill Nye, “The Science Guy”

“David Stockin’s book develops a clear understanding of Code requirements through extensive use of illustrations and clear text.” ―David Brender, P.E., Code-Making Panel NO. 5 member

“Stockin adds his own experiences to the fundamentals of NEC 250, allowing readers to visualize practical applications of routine rules in a new and novel way.” ―Travis Lindsey
