This review is from: Wind Power Workshop: Building Your Own Wind Turbine (Paperback)
I'm no eco warrior, I don't care a toss about climate change. I'm interested in domestic wind power for purely pragmatic reasons, but feared that this book would be largely filled with hippy BS. To my happy surprise it has turned out to be a book which is as pragmatic as I am: no propaganda, just the facts marm. And very interesting facts they are too: even briefly dipping into the book taught me things I didn't know before. My background is engineering, I had certain intuitions about how things would work which turn out to be plain wrong. For example, I had in mind a smaller less intrusive diameter with more blades to get the same torque, but the book explains why that is great for pumping water, not so good for power generation. I still have my hopes though! :-)
