Note* More than likely it WILL lose you a few times, and like any good reference/training material, re-reading it a couple of times you really see how what you didn't understand the first time through starts to make sense.
I do recommend this book,but must caution the reader against expecting too much from it.The Germans (Reiner zur Linde) and Japanese (Asano,Shishido et al)ar far ahead of anything published in English to date and until the US press "catches up" or someone translates these works,I think the would-be tube designer would do well to concentrate on literature from the mainstream tube period.
This is a reasonably good but not really comprehensive book, best picked up after you can solder, use test equipment-you cannot build or troubleshoot without a generator and some kind of oscilloscope as well as an AC voltmeter accurate to .1 dB from 20 Hz to at least 30 or 40 kHz, and people who tell you otherwise are misguided or lying-and follow schematics pretty well.
My main nitpick is the resource section in the back. I'll just come out and say it: they're ads. There's nothing wrong with that, but a lot of the companies are out of business. Someone that's interested in this subject will likely be able to find resources on the internet. I suppose it was more useful when the book was written.
The only books I have read that are better for beginners are the old Rider series (Basic Electricity and Basic Electronics), which are, alas, long out of print.
