It does seem pretty accurate and very well written. The book has a bibliography and index at the back for easy reference. The pictures used are pretty much ones you can find anywhere on the net, and they are black and white. However, the pictures are a pretty small part of the book as the book is large with small print. So a lot of information crammed into this volume. I'm glad I bought it because there are facts I never knew before in it's contents.
Cool, that sounds like a pretty glowing recommendation. I'll check it out.
