Format: Paperback
To any one who loves the big machines this book is a must have.
Keith Hoddock has got to be one of the premier authors on this subject. Keith has 10 chapters of some of the best writing on earthmovers that you can find. There are numerous pictures from B&W to color, that show all the different types of machines being discussed.
This book is also loaded with facts and figures about different machines and manufacturers that make it a very good reference guide.
This book will make a fine addition to any earthmoving library.

I bought this book because my two-year old son loves trucks, but I was going crazy reading the same kid's books over and over. What's more, spending so much time reading and talking about trucks made me curious too. I bought Colossal Earthmovers so that my son and I could share a book we'd both enjoy, and it's been great. He loves the pictures (which usually include a person in them, giving a good sense of scale). We just had a few parents and toddlers over this week, and the book was the center of attention.
If you're looking for a book that kids and adults will enjoy, this is a great choice.

This is a history of sorts of earth movers. Interesting book with good pictures from that regard (4 stars). What I was looking for was a "how it works" type view of these, this book is not that at all (1 star).

My son... Ohhh my son. He lost this book. A library book. So I must replace it. It's been a long time, the library is calling and want it back. So I picked it up here. My son really enjoyed the book. "What happened son?"

Update: Ugg. He found it finally. It's been about six months. And for some reason, going to the same spot on the book shelf again and again, finally the book showed up. But now, instead of a nice brand new book, it's a slightly used and good condition, library book, which we replaced. He's happy and relieved.
