Not good.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Was disappointing to me. Hard to follow and too much advanced information without any direction to "understanding" as the title suggest. Pictures are poor which makes it hard to see what is going on when building a balun. The schematic does not paint a complete picture.

Not impressed.

Obsolete Waste of Money  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This book would have been great if it used the more popular ferrite material types.

All the balun designs use ferrite cores which are obsolete. This book would have been a good balun/unun cookbook if it used the more popular Fair-rite or Amidon type material thats more widely available.

Dont waste you money on this book. It really should not be available for sale or it should be updated with design data for Amidon type cores.
