Reviews

"...an excellent reference for anyone interested in or involved in 'vintage electronics' - both newcomers and those with a few years under their belt. The text is written in a very friendly and accessible style... there's a huge amount of 'nitty gritty' information of a practical and technical nature." --Electronics Australia

"What an amazing collection of information!...This is a book which should be in every vintage radio entusiast's reference library." --Radiobygones, April 1999
