Fabulous and informative. Worth owning so you can pore over it at random. Love how it includes eras, areas (space, undersea) besides the "usual suspects" and has lots of fascinating details like how a ship's poor design could impact the success of an explorer. For geography, history and science buffs alike. Of course, Biesty's amazing-as-usual detailed drawings hold a whole book's worth of info--here they are smaller-than-trim-sized, multifold booklets.
