4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Force Continues!, January 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Yes, I like this book (the 7th edition). I had an earlier one but it's lost so I can't compare them directly. For Dinky collectors this is a must - if only for photographs of models not seen in other books. The price guide is included because it supposedly helps sell the book, but "guide" is the operative word. Prices have increased a lot as any web search will show. In my opinion the 'bible' for Dinky Toys remains the Richardson's "Great Book of Dinky Toys", but Dr. Force compliments it with more photographs even though the majority are only side views. I salute all these efforts to document the production of these great toys realizing that the perfect book might well be too costly to produce. It is easy to critcize the efforts but these have to be tempered with the realization of the work involved by enthusiasts who add so much knowledge and enjoyment to our love of Dinky Toys.

Fascinating backdrops for well-used toys. While other books depict mint or near-mint models, these photos reflect the purpose of their issue: play. A must for serious collectors who have or have had Dinky collections. Congratulations to Kim Sayer and Paul Atterbury for a wonderful collection.
