4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book, specially for non-fans 13 Mar 2011
I liked this small book. My version has a slightly different cover, same pic but with different titles.

There are a LOT of pictures, some of them in questionable quality, like the one of the last landing ever, very pixelated. The Concorde history is told in a very short way, as most of the book are photos. I was surprised to see a lot of new pictures, such as the rare all-white British-built Concordes.

Recommended to HARDCORE Concorde fans and as a gift to ANY aviation fan. Not-so-curious Concorde fans may not get so enthusiastic about it.

Regarding the size, the hardcover has the almost exact length, height and thcikness of a DVD plastic cover, with the pages being a bit smaller.

4.0 out of 5 stars A step into the magnificient Concorde story 7 Feb 2010
Peter R. March fills you with a lot of interestering facts on this magnificient aircraft - The Concorde. The small booklet is easy read and is illustrated with a lot of different photos of the Concorde in action. If you don't have an interest in the Concorde - this will surely send you to the bookstore to get hold of more information of the Concorde. The facts in the book are varied and all very interesting. The size of the book makes it an ideal travel companion.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Despite the usual lack of technical detail I enjoy this easy to read series. I feel that the Concorde is especially adapt to this format. It's well written and provides really what you whant to know of the subject plus many funny anecdotes. Recommended.
