4.0 out of 5 stars I would like to've seen the workings
This is a lovely book except that I was hoping it would have some press-out wheels or at least show both the outside and insides of one or two wheels so I could see how it works. This is a shame as there can't be that many books about this subject. I would like to've seen the workings.

3.0 out of 5 stars mor a personal collection rather than a study of a subject
There are many directions in which people may be drawn to this book - mine was from the perspective of understanding novel approaches to interacting with information.
From that perspective, the book is a slight disappointment in that it doesn't explain how the more involved designs actually work, or what the main generic designs are and where they may be best...

3.0 out of 5 stars mor a personal collection rather than a study of a subject, 1 Jan 2003
This review is from: Reinventing the Wheel (A Winterhouse book) (Hardcover)
There are many directions in which people may be drawn to this book - mine was from the perspective of understanding novel approaches to interacting with information.
From that perspective, the book is a slight disappointment in that it doesn't explain how the more involved designs actually work, or what the main generic designs are and where they may be best applied.
However, that criticism shouldn't detract from what is a beautifully presented collection of interactive discs from many decades (and centuries). Many discs are of a simple look-up table format and designed to be promotional freebies, although there are a few more unique examples, such as a means of measuring colour blindness.
The overall feel is of someone who has published a catalogue of their personal artifact collection.
