Though I must commend the author, who at 19 published this book, for his forward thinking and embrace of diy projects I found this book lacking.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
As others have mentioned the projects are missing key details and can hardly be called projects. Most projects consist of one page or less detailing how the item is supposed to work and construction techniques.
Technical drawings consist of basic outlines and the photos printed in the book are of terrible resolution (remember the days of 1 megapixel cameras and vga dispaly? think that kind of quality)
The book seems meant to give a very cursory knowledge of solar energy and its uses; if you already have a basic idea of how solar panels work and what they can be used for I suggest you flip through this book at the library or bookstore before purchasing it. Many of the projects in the book are simply taken from other sources, most of them available free online, and though credit is given where it's due it can hardly be considered an original text.
100% a great book to check out of the library and return in 3 days once you have seen what it offers.
