This book is worth the purchase price many times over.
For years I kept this book in the lobby of our firm, and everyone loved it. Especially the fire dept. inspectors making their rounds to see if our fire extinguishers were at the proper height on the walls, and our "Exit" signs illuminated. Seeing them fixated on this book suggested that they'd rather be riding in the wind, with one of those emblematic Dalmations, then writing me up for having too many extension cords snaking back to a single outlet.
So why only 4 stars? Because the author missed including any W.S. Darley fire trucks, made right here in Illinois without interruption for almost 100 years. Add a Darley, and I give it 5 stars.
