With a good edit and a clearer purpose this could be an excellent manual for the new angler, but as it stands it only deserves 2 stars.
That aside, if you're looking to get into fishing, in particular Freshwater / Coarse Fishing in the UK or Mainland Europe, this is one of the books I recommend as a MUST BUY at both my own fishing websites + those I pop into occasionally.

Some of the diagrams, particularly on knot tying are impossible to see, because the photos were taken too far away from the demo. The author hasn't devoted much time to any of the subjects. He also makes suggestions on what to do without explaining how to do it. Example: he suggests gluing certain baits like trout pellets to the hook without giving any tips on how to do it.
Overall 1 star rating is very fair.
