1 Page length of 48 pages is acceptable, provided the content is restricted to the topic, and that it be done in a quick-paced manner. What I mean is, you can't beat around the bush and you must address only the topic.
2 Pictures inserted do help, but can help more if they are captioned and if the photograph is specific to the topic/chapter. One photo shows a tackle box overflowing with stuff, which isn't bad, but they could also have snapped some pics of each, individually, content and interspersed the text with pics. Understood, inserting pics in a Kindle book is not as simple as it sounds, but I'm just saying...
3 Much of the early text is a bit clumsy to read. Tighten it up and it's not so bad. Also, there was some text that, if the writer had first read aloud to himself, I am sure he would have revised. Self-editing is not as easy as one might think though.
4 In one chapter the author suggests a six-foot rod. The next chapter he states 6 meters long. A minor error, but this is bound to cause troubles for some readers. At least until they go out and try to purchase a six meter fishing rod.
5 What was missing was an adequate explanation of each point raised. A brief discussion of what habitats are favored by each of the more common fish. Blue gills favor different habitats from crappe, trout, bass, and catfish. I'm thinking two pages of dedicated to each fish, with a photo of the fish, the habitat and/or either the lure or bait, could make for great reading.
6 The most difficult reading is from about 39% through 65% (or thereabouts) of the booklet, because this entire section is in bold blue, underlined, and is a hot link to a Wikipedia page displaying a fishing lure. Nearly impossible to read. This needs to be corrected as soon as possible.
I'm giving Fishing for Total Beginners three stars, primarily because I do want to encourage the writer to revise this book so youth can learn something about the rear outdoors.
