With a name like Jack Campbell, one might assume the author to be fluent in English. That person would be wrong.Either the author is not familiar with English sentence structure, or he attempted to write the book using a voice recognition software, and never bothered to read or edit the results. Trying to make sense of his fragmented verbiage was too exhausting, and I gave up after deciphering the introduction and half of the first chapter. I'll get my information from another title.EDIT:. As I felt unfair reviewing a book that I'd barely read, I finished the rest of it. Interestingly, the English gets a bit better around chapter 2, though it remains rough throughout the book. In all, I stand by my review. The information in the book is quite basic, and very scattered. Even if the writing was better, the informational content would have netted this book 3 stars.
So dense with errors of grammar, mechanics and logic that I have doubts the writer is a native speaker of English. He has no understanding of the needs of his nominal intended audience. The writing is by turns insular, opaque, elliptical and solipsistic. If it was on paper, I'd use it to light my charcoal grill. That's the only way I could get any value for my money.
I highly recommend this book. I Love this book that is why i am giving it a 5 Stars. This book acts as a first-time primer for complete beginner as well as a resource for amateur radio enthusiasts who like to add to their knowledge base. Within this book are some of the most common concept within ham radio, why they are important and some application using real-world ham radio scenarios. With the help of this book one will able to understand how radio transmission technology works, its fairly easy to get started with ham radio and begin communicating with other amateur radio operators all over the globe.What I like the most about this book is the fact that it is very informative. There are many mindfulness books out there that are full of fluff, but this book isn't one of them. It gives us clear direction in which to took if we want to become a serious amateur radio operator.
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! I had high hopes as a new "ham" that this book would help me with my new hobby. From the very first page it is obvious that the writer has no clue as to sentence structure, grammar or punctuation. It is also obvious that the author is writing English that is not his native language. It would have been wonderful if he had used an editor that could have help make the content at least readable.I shared the book with an experienced Extre ham and a relative new Technician. Each of these put the book down after reading a few pages remarking "how can you read this mess" and "it made my head hurt trying to understand". One star is for the great cover.
Not worth the paper it is printed on. There is no way the reviews can be real. The book reads like it was written in Spanish, translated with Google then read aloud in English while being transcribed by Google Voice. Whenever the book actually tries to convey anything of substance the language is so mangled it is worthless. The Morse code chart is even in Spanish which leads me to believe I am not far from the truth of how this book was written. Either that or it was written by some horrible neural net. Do yourself a favor. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK.
I'm not sure any of these reviews are real. Look at what the 'author' has released.None of his other books have anything to do with this topic/subject at all. This likely means he didn't write it or he simply knows nothing about it.The concepts are so horribly basic that there is absolutely nothing you can really learn if you have done so much as Google the topic of amateur radio.Horrible book, just a rip off.
Could not even complete the introduction. This must have been translated from another language without being proofread. Or it was written by someone who did not have an even basic understanding of the English language. I'm asking for a refund.
I like reading educational books and this book did not disappoint me. I am really not familiar with the ham radio and this book gave me the all the information I need to know. From the origin of the ham radio and how it becomes a factor in winning the wars before. This book made me realize how far the technology has evolve.
