Question electrical book

I would like some recomendations on a good book(s) to buy about home electricity and the DIY'er. Something that covers most everything would be great. Thanks for any help with this. I spent 3 hours the other day reading posts and answers. I found it very interesting.

I like how he tells you what meets code than makes suggestions for going beyond code.

racraft and mango man: Just wanted to say thanks for your suggestions. I just ordered these two books from Amazon (about $26) to have for reference.

Electrical Wiring Residential - Ray Mullin

Also, your state and local electrical codes - most relevant, least discussed here (for obvious reasons), often containing arcane exceptions to the NEC.
