High Quality Book, High Quality Work
on September 9, 2012
Before I begin on the review of the book's content, I will begin with the quality of the actual book / binding.
The pages are of a higher-quality, smoother paper, which give the book of a more distinguished feel. While the dust-cover image and text is rather unremarkable, which, I might add, is rather expected of this kind of book, the actual volume has the simple crimson and black with gold lettering on the side. The text is small, but not too small, or the lines too close together, that it is difficult to read. Finally, I do not know if this is typical, but my copy came with a signature from the author.
Now for the book's contents:
I found the book very enjoyable and well-written. While the style isn't that of a Hollywood thriller, it does what it sets out to do, to tell the story of George Eastman, and it does it well. It is very informative, the level of detail went well beyond my expectations, and, most importantly, the extensive list of cited sources lets me know that the information is accurate. All in all, if you are looking for the story of GE, this is the copy to buy.
Overall, 5/5 stars.
