Yes..  and it has a nice set of graphs showing that inductance doesn't 
vary much with diameter of conductor.

However, I couldn't find the "no sharp bends" guideline in there in a 
quick read through, and I have most of the references it cites, and they 
don't have it either.

It also uses the "cone of protection" thing, and some people think the 
"rolling ball" is a better model, but that's a pretty fine point.

Being from the 80s, it also doesn't reflect the latest Electrical code 
stuff with respect to grounding and bonding, but, again, the differences 
are small.
