I would not recommend this as a reference text for smaller scale systems, and I would certainly not recommend it for a hobbyist/home grower.
The same author has a book on hobby systems and it may be quite good if he adopted a very different style of writing. I think Keith Roberto's "How to Hydroponics" is OK, and I really very much enjoyed Jame Dekorne's ancient and small "The Hydroponic Hot House" with his crude methods and experiments exposed, warts and all.
First the reservations: if you definitively are or are going to be small scale, you don't need this pricey book. There are others that will work well for much less. There is more detail than you need for the backyard. Additionally, the author's writing style is at times stiff and wordy and technical terms frequently will have you looking for a dictionary. Another annoyance is that, despite the apparent good organization, based on looking at the table of contents, there are times whem the author wanders off course a bit.
Now the good news: Wow! This book is packed with all kinds of ideas about hydroponic operations (some of them really large scale) in the US, South America, Europe, and the Far East. You really get a great range of ideas to think about. You also will get a great deal of information about alternatives in growing mediums, plant nutrition and delivery thereof, greenhouse organization, on through to harvesting methodologies.
The bottom line is that, knowing what I know now, I would buy the book again, and plan to keep it close to the top of the pile :) where I can reach for some references.
