1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time or money on this "book"!, March 16, 2012
This review is from: Aeroponics Made Simple (Kindle Edition)
This "book" (extremely short - maybe a dozen pages and without a single illustration) contains numerous typing errors and it appears to have been written within one afternoon by a high school student. The author doesn't take the time to actually explain the subject manner in any depth whatsoever and there is an obvious effort to pad-out what little information this pamphlet actually contains.

If you read the article on Wikipedia about aeroponics you will have a much better grasp of the topic!

PS - Funny thing... in LESS THAN 24 HOURS after leaving my review I noticed that there were 5 more reviews left - check the dates - all with 5 stars!

Apparently there are a lot of people who are willing to pay $7.99 for a few pages of poorly written fluff!!!

I agree that the book was very basic and the typos were so bad that at first I suspected it had been scanned into electronic form from a foreign language. Any publisher should be ashamed of the editing!!

This is not the first book on hydroponics that I have seen with problems. I bought one for $3 and it was 50 pages long and at least one typo in every sentence almost. Amazon needs to wake up and be aware of this.
