This is a very easy to read book with hand some photos. The book is laid it in nice and basic categories commencing chronologically with a small body of text on each fire arm.

The text is nice and short, which is fine by the nature of the book. Though sometimes you do wish that it went longer. The technical data is nice and covers the generic stats found on most fire arms.

Over all this is a very well laid out book. Which is handful for references and basic reading on the subject. My only fault i
Very cool. It is very easy to read. It has at-a-glance stat boxes on a lot of guns. The best part is that it doesn't have page long explanations of the guns. It's kept short and sweet, with the longest explanations being a short paragraph or two.
