I bought this for my dad because of the reviews - having very briefly flicked through a few pages he said he had picked up some things he didn't know, and so it is worth it, but the book is tiny - it didn't look like I was handing him a £15 book, it looked like I was giving him a freebie pamphlet. I know quality rather than quantity - but as a gift it certainly does not look impressive to receive.
3.0 out of 5 starsIt's good, but not as good as others

As a Radio Presenter with a couple of years experiance, I wanted to get a book which gave some extended advice, which this does, but sadly not as good as Peter Stewarts "Essential Radio Skills", but for the price, it is good. Whilst its a slightly short ish read, it still contains really interesting advice, which is handy. A good read.
Read this book carefully,took around three hours 100 pages. Purchased after reading so called readers reviews £13-99 plus postage. I have worked as a volunteer in radio now for 4 years. Please take heed, don't be a fool like me. The author talks about radio being a business, so is writing and selling books to also make money. One piece of advise in this book is to reserve yourself a radio training course for around £175. Sorry Mr author I don't need to spend £13-99 for such advise. I would have felt cheated if I had wasted £5 on this book. Thank you for nothing Ken.
