Jim Beloff's book, "The Ukulele:A Visual History", is a wonderful compilation of facts and pictures of this facinating instrument. One of the reasons I liked it was because there are no recent books out about Hawaiian musicians. The ukulele is irrevocably tied to Hawaiian music and musicians; their heritage and their history. I recently purchased a ukulele and I found this book a great resource for understanding the original ukulele makers as well finding a modern luthier to suit my needs. Its a fast and facinating read and a "must-have" for any ukulele buff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book 2 May 2013
By Fernando G. Santos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
But kinda superficial. Is a book you can read in less than one hour. The pictures are cool, but as a reference book, I'd recommend The Ukulele: A History by John King and Jim Tranquada.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for an Ukulele Fanatic! 29 May 2014
By Mark W. Swarthout - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you love this diminutive instrument, you owe it to yourself to get this book! It contains the basic history of the instrument, many of the key individuals involved in its evolution and popularity over time. The photographs are incredible, with vintage instruments, sheet music and lots of personalities. The author has a passion for the instrument and is one of the reasons the ukulele has grown so much in popularity in the last two decades and it shows through in the book.
