I am only about half-way through this book, but it has some major flaws.

It wasn't edited at all. No one even bothered to review it before publishing. There are many grammatical errors (subjects change from singular to plural in mid-sentence, for example), and there are extra words thrown in as if someone changed how they worded the sentence, but didn't type it right. An editor would catch these simple errors, but they make some of this stuff hard to read.

The book refers to figures and tables that are not even in the book. Later, when the tables ~are~ there, the data and columns are all shoved together as if just the words were taken out of an spreadsheet and pasted in this text. This made at least two of the tables an unreadable mess. (Not through the book yet.)

Sentences are broken in odd places, sometimes a whole line only has one word in it.

The web site on the front cover is blocked. (If I wrote this mess, I'd block access to my web site too.)

The book states in the prologue that it is only designed to be used as reference during a training course. Something not mentioned on the product page. (Half the instructors time would be spent correcting text and printing out tables and figures to replace the missing ones.)

Still, it is the only HAZWOPER book I found, so I gave it 2 stars. We'll see how it goes through the rest of the book.
