2.0 out of 5 stars Not Helpful AT ALL!, September 14, 2004
This review is from: Spin Wave Technology: Initial Release (Paperback)
This book has been a hinderance rather than a help in the development of my knowledge regarding spin waves.

The content in most chapters I read is scattered all over the place and all too repetitive with vague definitions of concepts which essentially must be grasped in order to understand the basics of the books' content.

Definitely not a beginners' book as you are required to sort out and sift through much information before taking it in, which becomes a real task with so much going on in this book.

The author does state that this is not really a book but rather a collection of his notes. This is obvious through the bad grammar used throughout the book. Unfortunately for me, wanting to obtain the knowledge, the grammar was so bad I could not extract it!

I really am disappointed it could not have been written in a more 'user friendly' manner, however I would consider buying a second version of the same book ONLY if it had been REVISED by someone with an intimate knowledge of teaching, grammar, book writing and the necessary spin wave theory.
