Book is 20% advertisements and will NOT show you how to grow
on August 13, 2011
This book is for someone who wants to look at advertisements and pictures.
The book is 50% pictures, 20% advertisements.
THIS BOOK WILL ***NOT*** TEACH HOW TO GROW IN A STEP BY STEP MANOR.
The book just throws a bunch information out there like 'MH is good, HPS is good, here's the lumens they can output.
But it doesn't tell you what you really need for your space, how hot each gets, what's most efficient, what the majority of people are using. It's just all basic background info so you come out even more confused.
Also, there's a drawing or graphic for almost every sentence. For instance, it will say that mold can happen at 45% humidity (which isn't entirely true as there are so many other factors), yet the book has to waste a bunch of space on a graphic showing a speedometer graphic at 45% humidity.
Then it dawned on me; the more color and pictures the pot heads see, the more higher the book gets rated. Aww.. genius. They really understand their audience.
So future book authors, to get a high rating don't teach people how to grow, just have as many pictures, graphics, and advertisements as possible and you'll get 5 stars and be called amazing.
This book is a joke, waste of time, and will not teach you how to grow if you are actually looking to learn how to grow. Newbs should stay far away. It's like buying a book on how to drive, and getting lessons on engine theory with a bunch of graphics and pictures..
