Great book if you are a Gerry Anderson fan. Fast read, but filled with lots of interesting and fun facts about all the Anderson shows. Great, rare photos and trivia. Highly recommended.
4.0 out of 5 stars The Pictures Were the Best Part.... 22 Sep 2012

It's a fast, fun read but I was a bit disappointed except for the photos; I thought they were the best part. I'm probably being too critical, but I think there is more interesting and detailed "behind the scenes" info in other books, such as Filmed In Supermarionation: A History Of The Future and The Complete Book of Classic Thunderbirds.
