Why 3 stars? Would have done only 2 1/2 stars if I could.
Because a book on this subject deserved a whole lot better treatment by the publisher.
As others have commented page quality ( yes, thin as heck ).
The size of the book is really another big complaint from me. Come on, why not just do it as a comic book.
It was really a terrible idea to print this volume in a crippled format. The photos and drawings are ridiculously small and hard to discern.
It deserved to be published one, as a hardback edition as a companion volume to the previous book by Mr. Pocock, 50 years of the U-2 where
the photos and drawings would be more easily seen. And of course pages would have been more durable. And it would fit into my library better.
Don't get me wrong, the updated information presented in this book by Mr. Pocock is well worth having in your Dragon Lady library, again its the poor way the book was published that I poorly rated this book.
Use of a higher grade paper would do the book some justice as well for the pictures.
The best grade picture is on the front cover. The book should have been better made, even if it met less pages.
Seems more like a cheap fund raiser for the author's retirement fund. Poor quality I think.
