This book is justto much money without alot of useable information. Some of the books content is really quite interesting and cool. However for $10.00 it is way too much money. Some ideas are just so out of date (ig. a gun shooting in the air when a fish is cought) and is almost useless. Some of the "common" materals of the authers age is not so common today. But nevertheless i will be doing some of his cool ideas.
