I bought this book about 6 months ago to learn how to wire my old 35 year boat properly. It deals a lot with theory, and how DC current works. Not a great deal with adding terminals, routing wires etc. It explains in good detail on what size wire to use for what application, such as lights or windless depending on power consumption. This is one of the books strong points. I was disappointed with the book, for what I was looking for. I find the Time Life Books much better for practical use. I haven't opened the book since I read throw it the first time and have donated it to a local leading library. I may review the book again for some of it's technical points, so it is worth having in your library if you plan to have more than one book on DC current

This comprehensive review of boat batteries is quite useful beginning with the basics of electricity including Ohms Law etc. There is an entire chapter on charging batteries and the basic electricity behind lighting systems and circuits is carefully analyzed. Bear in mind that the writer and published are English so when he mentions a torch we in the west think of a flashlight. A few other little details like that are amusing but easily accommodated. I suppose my quibble is that I found the discussion on boat vs automotive batteries to be a little confusing when that topic should be discussed at greater length. There are 194 pages that contain many diagrams and photographs. I do recommend the book and especially appreciate it for covering the topic at a very elementary level yet adding to the complexity as you go along so that it may be of use to more advanced boating enthusiasts.

This is a good book, but it was written in 1985 and revised in 2003. Though many things hold true, technology has advanced quite rapidly meaning the publisher should consider more frequent revisions. From a 2013 perspective the chapter on solar power could probably use some expansion. LED lights, and newer type batteries may be worth a mention, and though probably not 12V, it would be great to expand the book by adding a chapter on electric propulsion, which at this point is completely ignored.

Simply not very useful. Most certainly should not have "Bible" in the title, for any reason.

Absolute must for ANY boat owner. Keep it on you boat. The author gives you the complicated technical explanation and then does a great job at explaining this to the layman. Lots of good charts and table to use for reference.

I bought this book hoping to learn more about Boat batteries but it did not deliver... It does review the basics of electricity, batteries wiring etc and I found a lot of information to be very educative and interesting but the book overall did not answer the most important questions:

1. the 20h battery power was mentioned perhaps once or twice. This is the most important point when it comes to boat power... What does it mean is not enough.. I wanted to know how to calculate the consumption of the various elements.. can i keep the radar on while on battery and for how long? etc...etc...

2. How to charge a battery, how to pick an alternator. Again nothing.

3. What batteries to choose for a sailboat, depending on length equipment etc.. What is the difference between the house batteries, windlass battery and starter battery... All these points were missed.

So in other terms the title is misleading and the book is far from being a bible!!! It should be a 5$ book that you read in one day and discard.. this is not a reference..

Anyone who can write a book about 12 volt battery systems on your boat and sell over 100,000 copies must be doing something right. This book is a clear, not-to-technical introduction to the 12-volt electrical systems, modern batteries, your boat's breaker and panel design, alternative energy sources, and most importantly, troubleshooting electrical equipment.
Even if you've never worked with electricity, but now need to because you have a boat, "The 12-Volt Bible for Boats" is a great introduction that covers more than just the basics. The early part of the book covers all of the beginner introduction to batteries and electricity. It also explains the differences between 12-Volt car systems and boat systems. This book helps you determine what gauge wire you need for what current demand of your new piece of equipment and length of the wire run. The later chapters cover specifics of how to hook up particular equipment such as solar panels and wind generators. The final section covers test equipment you can build yourself. This book is definitely worth the price.
