Mini in (iilifni growing silicon crystals, the construction of the cells, and about the differences between single crystal, polycrystalline and amorphous silicon.

The chapter on how cells work was pretty good, but maybe a level higher than the rest of the book. A knowledge of chemistry and physics would definitely make the section easier to understand.

The chapter on how to size and install systems was informational, but there is a wealth of knowledge out there that is more complete and up-to-date. The same goes for the section on storage of solar electricity.

At $18.95 Komp's 6" X 9" paperback has over ninety illustrations and photos, though many of the photos seem dated... like the photo of the guy in a seventies hair style manufacturing ARCO modules.

I recommend this book for folks that are just learning about PV, but with the warning that this is definitely not a book that can be titled "The Complete Book of Photovoltaics."
