Pam H

Brief on every topic. Very basic information geared towards beginners on the topic. The Print quality and paper poor. Seemed I was reading a how-to from the 60s. This makes me wary of buying books from Mother Earth recommendations.

Larry Deutsch
What if?!?

Good stuff.!!

Ken Hitchins
Good read, but had some drawbacks.

Disappointed to learn that some of his skills needed further information from his website. That would pose a problem if you didn’t have the internet in the vicinity.

Richard Neider
Good book, quality fair.

Very good tips to develop skills. Paper pages poorer quality of paper and all black and white photos so far. Have not finished book yet. To get 5 stars you need better photos and better quality paper pages.

Darren Van Dreel

Kind of a fun read
