My favorite part about this book is that it is well organized and easy to read. The author doesn't spend any time trying to spin you around on jargon and really writes as a good teacher about just about every aspect of a solar power system. So far, it is the best book that I have found for getting started on understanding solar, and would certainly recommend it to anyone who has no idea where to start on solar, and even those who may, but are looking for another perspective or more detailed information.My only disappointment was the lack of complete system designs. The concepts are all there, but there aren't many examples of components that the author may have chosen and used. While this would certainly date the book and reduce it's relevance over time due to changes in technology, it would have made it a nearly complete guide to designing a solar power system. I had hoped that it would include more talk about specs of current components, to give a better idea of what kinds of specs one might look for and pair with, when designing a system of various sizes. While this may be unrealistic, I bet there are readers out there who might enter this book with a similar expectation.Overall, this book provided a great jump start into solar power. I would recommend it to anyone who thinks they may be interested in solar (whether DIY or professional installers), because it lays out the entire framework for a basic understanding of the components of a solar power system, without getting deeply into the jargon. If you're looking for jargon, you may find that it will take some additional research. So far, this is the best resource I have found.
