This review is from: Collins Complete Wiring and Lighting (Paperback)
What a disappointment!
What a brilliant book the Collins Complete DIY is, good drawings, instructions the whole works.
Hoping that the Collins Wiring Guide would take a more
specialist view of wiring I ordered that as well.
Big Disappointmnet. This is a perfect copy of the electrical section of the Complete Manual page for page diagram for diagram... what a cheat!
Moreover when you try to point this out to Amazon there is no way to contact them...and then they do not pay postage either way when you return the book!
What a pity such shoddy sales techniques diminishes the excellent Complete Manual.

I bought this book too. I found it next to useless. I am not an electrician but I would have known most of the content without buying the book.Forget about its title, leave out the word complete, it is far from been comprehensive. So if you just want to buy a book that will tell you how to wire an immersion timer, for example, forget about it.
