I used to love looking through books like this, great coffee table books for sure and nice to have with you when traveling. Thanks for all of the photos Brian, I'll be sure to keep my eyes out for a copy.

Thanks Jeremy.

It reminded me of the old Jane's Defence pocket books I used to look at in my High school library, only bigger. How many remember those books? LOL.

Thanks for the review Brian, I just ordered this one from Amazon. I find these 'general reference' books very enjoyable, and this one looks pretty good with a wide range of subjects.

James,
Yw. Glad to hear you got one on the way. I'll have to see what it list over there. I'm sure it won't be but maybe 2 dollars more than what I picked mine up for, still a very good deal.

I have revised the pricing on the review to reflect the variability of purchasing.

Thanks for doing that Bill. I had mentioned that in one of the re-writes.

My pleasure, Brian. It looks like a winner. Getting James to spend his own money on something is a coup!
