I received a copy of this book yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. It is much more interestingthan what I expected. The author cares about the subject matter and it shows. The book is not an in-depth history book, but it is not pure marketing "puff" either. There are dozens of wonderful surprises both within the text and among the illustrations. The layout is also a pure delight.

While this is not necessarily a "must have" for readers of this blog, it is a book that I am really happy to recommend snce it made me smile from ear to ear yesterday.

There is real care that went into the making of this book as well as the will to create something different instead of simply recycling known bits and pieces of information. This is refreshing and quite encouraging.
