A pipefitter is a tradesperson who installs, assembles, fabricates, maintains, and repairs mechanical piping systems. Piping can consist of copper, PVC, CPVC, polyethylene, and galvanized pipe, which is typically glued, soldered, or threaded. Plumbers, pipefitters, and steamfitters learn on the job through an apprenticeship, but also go through licensing and accreditation. According to the Occupations Handbook, there are at least 950,000 pipefitting jobs in 2018. The pipefitting industry is expected to grow 21% from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. Construction of buildings and the need for new septic and mechanical systems should drive demand for qualified workers. Well-trained and knowledgeable pipe fitters are urgently needed in the U.S., Canada, and also New Zealand and Australia, in particular. The Pipefitters Handbook has been THE indispensable reference for pipefitters of all levels for about 50 years. It continues to sell well, despite its age and outdated appearance. Here, in one book, the authors are modernizing this work for the entire pipefitting trade. There will be much more information on plastic pipes and tubing, which was NOT included before. The content will include modern materials, standards, and requirements. All state exams are taken into consideration. The authors will also include true/false and multiple-choice questions - the type students studying for the certification will see on their official exams. Tools and instruments are included to familiarize the individual with the labor-saving devices and their correct utilization. This is the perfect resource for all those entering the trade.

Der Autor arrangiert seine Gesichte der "positiven Energie" um die Metapher eines Busses, welcher sinnbildlich für das Leben eines jeden Einzelnen steht und stellt zehn konkrete Handlungsmaxime für ein positiveres und glücklicheres Leben vor. Um zu diesen Empfehlungen zu gelangen, begleiten wir George, der als Teamleiter bei einem Glühbirnenfabrikanten arbeitet. George hat nicht nur auf der Arbeit seinen Weg verloren. Als ehemals gefeierter Günstling seinen Chefs steht er mittlerweile nicht nur unter Dauerstress sondern auch auf der Abschussliste. Das wirkt sich auch auf sein Privatleben aus. Zu wenig Zeit für seine Kinder und zu wenig Zuwendung für seine Frau führen immer wieder zu Spannungen in der einst so harmonischen Beziehung. Seine Existenz ist nicht viel mehr als ein Scherbenhaufen. Bis zu dem Tag, als ihn ein platter Reifen zwingt, den Bus zu nehmen und er auf die Busfahrerin Joy trifft. Was er in diesem Moment noch nicht weiß: Joy und die Passagiere ihres Busses haben es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, gescheiterte Existenzen wie George mittels zehn einfacher Regeln wieder auf den rechten Weg zu führen. Zunächst reagiert George sehr ablehnend, doch schließlich lässt er sich auf die "Behandlung" der ewig lächelnden Busfahrerin ein und kann schon bald erste Erfolge verzeichnen. Letzten Endes rettet die Fahrt im "Energy Bus" nicht nur seinen Job und seine Ehe, sondern macht ihn auch zu einem glücklicheren Menschen.
