Having recieved my copy yesterday (July 23, 3 days prior to the UK release date, somehow. :S ), I've read just less than a quarter of it, although I did only start today :P
, and so far I'm enjoying it very much. It really is full of interesting information and 'trivia'. I'd highly recommend it on the textual content alone, in addition the book itself is of very high quality despite being a paperback. The print quality of the images and illustrations is also very good.
I do have a single word of caution, "fingerprints!" yes the paper used has a finish that 'attracts' fingerprints (although I'd guess that the finish is required to obtain the print quality). Luckily I have seen this finish in other books (as I'm sure most people have) so as soon as I opened it I knew not to touch the pages, except at the edges. I also put the book down to go wash my hands, thoroughly! :D
(and I will do so everytime before reading it)
To anyone reading this who does not have a copy (on the way), GO!, BUY!, NOW! You will be very pleased!@feliciaday
I thought you would like to know that I've been smiling to myself the whole time I've spent reading the book so far. :D
