More of a intro into ham radio

More of a Ham Radio 101... contesting is minimal. Don't get me wrong it is a good book for an intro. I was looking for contesting substance.

Anything BUT "complete."

This book promises to be a complete "manual" of ham radio contesting, but doesn't deliver. Most of it consists of a vague, general, beginner's description of amateur radio and how to get a license (off topic; if the reader didn't know this he or she would have no interest in contesting in the first place). There is very little actual material about the subject the book purports to cover. No insightful tips or inside information for the ham who is interested in learning about contesting - just a few basics one could pick up for free on the Web. Not worth an Audible credit; I am "returning" the audiobook.
