Don't waste your time
By David H.
The book is worth exactly what I paid... $0. The first half seems to just be ads for their other books. The second half is just all the things that any somewhat informed person already knows about solar. No practical information, no specifics. Just general background information. Don't waste your time.

Not much de-mystifying going on here, another blog post to book project ?
Lots of general blabla that a simple internet search does reveal as well. I got it for 0 dollars on sale, but it was still non memorable and little informative. If it would have cost money, I would have been upset.
I had hoped for an explanation of how exactly solar power works (schematics, electrical flow, component analysis, set up ect) - not much demystifying going on here
