Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I just received this book. I began reading it, and after the first 7 pages,it repeated over again the exact same thing in French. I did not pick this up until now.
This book contains, 160 pages. Out of the 160 pages, I would like to advise you of the contents.
32 pages of written content,16 english, 16 in french. This tells of the start and fall of Kodak.
18 Blank Pages.
1 page index
1 page bio.
1 page acknowledgements
1 Page Colophon
The remaining pages contain Photographs, without any eplanation as to what they are at all. A lot of pages contain one photograph 4x6 on a page that is 9.5 x 8.
I ordered this a couple of months ago, and very excited to get it.The book itself is very nice, but the content is less desirable.
I would like to know about the pictures, and what they mean. I bought this book to learn, and not just see! We all can take pictures, this is evidence to Kodaks success.
I dislike offering a negitive review, however, this book is very expensive for what content is offered. Therefore, as soon as I am through here, I will be contacting Amazon for instructions on returning this Book for a complete refund. Very disapointed!

Format: Hardcover
They say an image worth thousand words. This is exactly what this book delivers. An in-depth journey in one of the most glorious fail in american engineering history. Each photo, carefully selected in a refined layout reminds us of the fragility and futility of our beliefs. No need to comment or explain, the pictures are evidences of what's left after the fall of the giant. It's a personal, subjective view on this remarkable story, don't expect an exhaustive, objective approach. In the end, the biggest heritage of Kodak is in our shoe boxes: the visual memory of our daily lives.
