This book is rediculus and useless unless you have the code book and my teacher is not allowing me to use it becuase that would be cheating. I would appreciate it if this book was burned to the ground with a pickmans red minion from the planet putonium, and i hate will. No im kidding about that last sentice but it is a GOOD book very usefull, I WOULD RECCOMEND if you wish to become and electrician.
