4.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title and intro, bt good book, December 5, 2002
This review is from: Morse Code: Breaking the Barrier (Paperback)
I found the book very useful in terms of advice and guidance, however there is no actual help in learning the code in the book.
To make this statement clearer, this book serves as an introduction to the method of learning by Koch which seems to cover about 1 1/2 chapters. The rest is spent reviewing Morse history and praising the method, along with a lot of stuff about morse keyers and techniques / watchpoints once the code is learned.
I found it to be a useful book, and I'm glad I bought it - but disappointing and not what I expected from the title and the intro on Amazon pages. Also, I live in Hong Kong and the mentioned support, equipment etc is much harder [read 'impossible'] to find here, than it *probably* is in the US!
Do buy it, there's a lot of good stuff, but beware that it's only a guide to the Koch method and it gets you started on the right path rather than actually teaches any code. Don't expect too much!
Cheers!
