4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, just not for me.
Reviewed in the United States on 3 November 2020
The author is well versed in the physics of reflectors, and reading this book will provide a college level course in antenna physics and theory. It has lots of well illustrated designs and cautions on what to avoid.
The problem is, I don't feel I'm in the target audience for such a book.
All I want is practical, ready-to-make antenna designs, like a vertical with radials, a two or three-element Yagi, or a simple loop.
Instead we are presented with designs that I feel 99% of ham radio operators would not be interested in.
Such as 1. Feeding two dipoles simultaneously; 2. Double in-line verticals; 3. Two stacked dipoles, and even solid metal reflectors. Who's got time or money to build a full wave metal wall? (See image.)

I really enjoyed the discussion on the G5RV multi-band antenna. That was helpful and well explained.
For many people the book will go a long way in helping you comprehend the dynamics of antenna design.
For me, I'll stick to reading the detailed reports you can find on line and in QST magazine illustrating home-brew do-it-yourself designs.
