Customer Reviews

This really is a superb book. It's well written without being overly complicated, is lavishly illustrated and should attract readers across a wide age range. There's no much within this book that you can quite easily pick it up again and again and probably find plenty of interest to read about. The presentation is excellent and it's a bargain at this price.
