    What Book should I be reading in my spare time?

    Right now Im strongly considering purchasing this book by the end of today.

    http://www.amazon.com/Refrigeration-...=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

    If anyone has any other recommendations on any other book I should read or can give any positive feedback on this particlar book I would be open to hearing them. I only plan on purchasing one book for now.

    I'm till very green, Im familiar with the basic refrigeration cycle and the componments within that cylcle but I would like to begin understanding wiring diagrams and how controls work.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you get a chance read "Lone Survivor". Nothing to do with HVAC but is a great book.

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I ended up not purchasing the book i linked to in my initial post (although I may still buy it in the future), from the reviews it seems like this book covers the basics, which isnt a problem, but I feel as though I already have a sufficient amount of reading material covering the basics to hold me over. Instead I got a book (used) covering both the basics of electricity and controls. Keeping my hopes up that its in good condition.
