very very informative!, 17 Jun. 2008
As I was mostly interested in the history of the formats for my disseration on vinyl, rather than record collecting, I was surprised on what a goldmine this book proved itself, very accurate descriptions on every music format ever sold, with sales figures and important turning points. Must read for anyone who want to learn the history from the invetion of Edison phonograph up to 2002 when this book was published.
