really neat book 18 April 2007
By plife - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I got the book as a birthday present for a friend who owns a 1968 vespa. Compared to all the other Vespa books, this had the best combination of vespa-nerd technical information and great historical content -- not just about the development of the scooter, but about how it affected people around the world. I also love the "pillowy" cover, which makes the book not just visually entertaining (so many great photos), but, also just holding it is a great tactile experience.

The Vespa Pocketbook 18 Nov 2007
By Karl Sooder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Although the book is deceptively small, its contents are very comprehensive. Contained between its high quality hard covers is a comprehensive view of the Vespa history, current and former production models and associated marketing programs. It's a very handy travel volume for those of us who love to strike up conversations about the world's most popular scooter brand.

Archival photo book 20 Aug 2010
By Laura A. Fitzgerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I thrive on this book for its photos depicting the scooter's history from its early beginnings through its publicity programs to the present times, and I never stop browsing it to relieve the people's bliss up close - that's a good format as far as I can tell! Thank you so much!

Great book. 27 Jun 2014
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book. I have been a fan at a distance of Vespa Scooters for a while, but I was never very knowledgeable. This provides a great guide that brought me up to speed on the rich Vespa history.

The book has a ton of full color photos that make it fun to just flip through, and plenty of information for when you want to sit down and read. Considering how hard it is to find an up to date in print book I think this is definitely worth checking out if you are a Vespa fan. It makes a great coffee table book too!
