I knew a lot of the information in this book, but that isn't the book's fault. It is a great overview of space-limited antennas including construction details.

The Kindle edition could use some work. There was at least one mysterious transition, probably because sidebar text was included in-line. It needs much finer chapter divisions for on-line reading. I'm fine with avoiding chapter divisions to save printing costs, but a book this long with only four chapters is awkward.

The book presented information about a lot of different topics. It offered a lot of things to consider. It did not go into great depth on a lot of things. I found it helpful when I was shopping for the stuff I have now used to assemble a station and get it on the air. I'm fighting a feedback/interference problem but I think I need to pick up the ARRL's book on station grounding for a deeper understanding of this particular issue.

This book is an outgrowth of articles submitted to QST, the official journal of the American Radio Relay League. The articles gathered in this book are the best of the ideas presented over a three-year period from two monthly columns: "Hints and Kinks" and "Gimmicks and Gadgets."

This is a moderately good collection of general emergency procedures, including command and control structures, what to pack in an emergency, and how to act. It's written in a conversational style, which is easy to read, but sometimes that means more complex information is glossed over. For example, not all of the various elements of a radiogram are discussed.

A second edition would be best served by hiring a proofreader, and also adding blank forms and reprinting the checklists in a (second) appendix.

Overall, though, it's a helpful book. Perhaps the best part may be the 50-odd page appendix mostly dealing with various QST articles about batteries. (If only I were technically sophisticated enough to understand them!)
