This book will definitely be of interest to anyone who enjoys historical radio technology, especially in the amateur bands. It is filled with practical advice for the inter-World-War hobbyist and radio experimenter, from how to build radios even from scratch (winding one's own coils and building handmade capacitors) to advice on forming and administering a radio club.
However, the digitizing of this title leaves much to be desired. This clearly received absolutely no editing after being scanned and OCRed. The uncorrected typos make the text almost (occasionally entirely) unreadable, sections are obviously missing, and stray gobbets of incomprehensible text left over from digitizing (that is, not from the scanned text) appear here and there with great regularity. To be perfectly frank, this is the most poorly digitized text I have encountered to date.
Such an interesting text cries out to be better rendered! I call on those who made this available to edit their text to make it usable. I, for one, would be willing to pay for a properly edited version.
