Great Idea. Great Book. Great Expense ??,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time & Space Visualiser: The story and history of Doctor Who as data visualisations (Paperback)
I like lists. I like reading them and I like making them. I like graphs and pie charts and flow charts. This book interprets pretty much all Who related information and sets each topic out in a clever visual. For example the authors of the Target novelisations are set out as book volumes on a shelf. Terreance Dicks has a whopping Stephen King sized volume to account for his 65 novelisations. So I love this book.
There are many, many more with a healthy amount of text to accompany each diagram. Highly recommended if you are extremely nerdish.
However at £22.45 (plus varying prices) it is steep for what you get. It's paperback and looks remarkably thin (although it has a large page count) My first impression was "Is that it?". With this kind of price I would have at least expected hardback. I don't mind paying over the odds but it has to look like it justifies the cost. (Nearer £15 max in my opinion)
I expect the high price is because it's from a little known publisher (apologies to Wonderful Books if you are a Super-Chain)
HOWEVER. IT IS A GREAT BOOK. Perhaps wait until the price drops.
Loses a star for the price
