The only mistake I know of in this otherwise excellent book is regarding isolated ground circuits. The book told you to use the red wire as the isolated ground, a clear code violation. I don't know if newer versions of the book have corrected this error. In my opinion, however, they should just remove all references to an isolated ground circuit anyway. They are not useful in residential wiring.
