4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 17 July 2010
By Scar
Format:Paperback
I got my book within 7 days although it was not as quick as the other book I ordered at the same time. And the book was as good as new. It was a good service and I will buy books from this seller again.

Rigorously researched and brilliantly presented. Full of technical and historical detail with a wealth of well thought-out diagrams. I cannot imagine a more informed book on the subject and it is very readable, too! Quite an achievement.
