Todd's Reviews > The Gun
Disappointing considering how much I like Chivers' reporting in the Ny Times and his blog. Uneven style and recurring redundencies. Could have been much shorter. Tying the central theme to the AK47 is a stretch and works better as a general history of the automatic rifle. The sections on the development and commercialization of the Gatling, Maxim and M-16 are great, though.
