Off-beat information. I’m sure this book is exactly what some people are looking for but wasn’t what I needed. He devotes most of the book to stuff that very few people would be interested in and doesn’t cover normal DIY solar topics in depth.

Mentions of wire gauge concerns vs amperage – but no tables or details that would help people correctly size runs distances vs…

Save your $ and just google starting with general queries and then specific ones once you understand how the systems are put together and work. YouTube videos would also be much more useful than these two…
