Help with reading Alignment Report

Hi guys, I don't know much about suspensions, but my RSX was tracking to the left when the steering wheel was held straight. I took it to a shop and it seems to have been fixed, but I was wondering if I could get some feedback about the report. Was the alignment performed correctly?

The Comments on the report was: "Setback on Left-Front wheel causing low caster.".

Much thanks.

Caster is how far forward/back the wheel is in relation to the center of the wheel well. Caster doesn't really affect the car in a straight line. Think of those low rider bikes where the front forks are super long and the front wheel is way in front of the bike. When you turn the wheels, they gradually have more camber because of the geometry.

Where they did most of the adjusting was on the camber and toe on the left side. You went from positive camber and toe out to szero toe out and slightly negative camber. Basically the left wheel was pointed to the left while driving on the outside shoulder when the right wheel is slightly pointed to the left and driving on the inside edge.
