This book is really old. You can tell it's the 1000th reprint because it looks like your grandpa photocopied it in the 1980s and let it sit on a dusty shelf before you bought it. Don't let it fool you into buying some new overpriced book. Radio propagation hasn't changed since the 1980s!!! This is as modern as you're going to get buddy. Buy it now so you'll be ready to QRM Solar Cycle 24!
What will probably be the most used part of the book, particularly by beginners but also by experienced hobbyists, is the Do-It-Yourself Prediction Chart section. Here you can get an idea as to what reception conditions can be expected from specific areas of the world into a specific region of the United States (and presumably the southern part of Canada).
"The New Propogation Handbook" is a great way to learn about how shortwave radio waves get to your receiver from all over the world, but it should also be thought of as a tool in the hobby of SWL as much as the "World Radio Television Handbook" or "Passport to Worldband Radio." I believe that new hams should find it particularly useful.
