The book is quite haphazardly organized. There is no chronological, no alphabetical, no "most popular" order to this book whatsoever. That's a complete tragedy. There are 131 images in this book, and providing no organization means readers have to search through a variety of images -- full-page to postage-stamp sized -- to find the performers they like.
Most models are given one or two images, no matter how popular or legendary they are. Flash-in-the-pan actors who've worked more recently are given better coverage than truly legendary performers like Kris Lord, Jack Dillon, Jeff Quinn or Joey Stefano. Mediocre performers like Billy Brandt, Matthew Anders, Lane Fuller, Mark Gray, Trent Black, Cort Stevens, and Brennan Foster are given full-page images -- and often several pages of photos.
Some of the models in the book -- like Nicholas Clay, Karl Tenner, Kevin Miles, and Gregor Yelson -- are bit-players in the Falcon stable. Meanwhile, only one image -- usually a smaller one -- is allotted to superstars like Michel Lucas, Matt Gunther, Allan Lambert, Vince Rockland, Logan Reed, Bill Henson, Michael White, Steve Henson, Steve Wright, Erik Houston, Johnny Hanson, Lon Flexx, Chris Williams, and Luke Bender -- men who built the Falcon name and did many of Falcon's early and best pictures.
Overall, the quality of the photographs isn't that high.Read more ›
That's not to say the subjects aren't nice to look at -- it's a delight to see many of my favorite Falcon models -- but I'd be hard-pressed to want to really call them "legends" -- yet. While it's no lie to say that the talents of such models as Ken Ryker and Mike Branson -- among others in the book -- are somewhere just above amazing, I was expecting to see pictures of what I would call "true legends" of Falcon's stable of actors -- Dick Fisk, Casey Donovan, Race Jensen and other actors who, in the 1970s and early 1980s, made up the "Falcon look." There are a couple who, in my opinion, have achieved "Legend" status (Kevin Williams and Joey Stefano, to be exact), but the others...not *quite* yet.
Don't get me wrong here -- I definitely DO NOT want to take away from the looks and talent of Tom Chase, Branson, Ryker, Brennan Foster, etc...but give them a few more years for their videos and the like to gain that "legendary" status among viewers and then they'll have definitely attained the title of "Legends."
I think there should have been more pages. Some models got multiple pages, while others got to share space with another model on one page. Come on...would it really hurt to give them their own page?Read more ›
However, 'Legends: Men of Falcon' is a somewhat disappointing display of their more famed models. Gorgeous Falcon 'Exclusives' like Eric Hanson, Tristan Paris, Ken Ryker, Mike Branson, Tom Chase, Kevin Miles, and Aiden Shaw reveal all but for the most part in upwards to 3 pictures each. Other notables like Jeff Hammond, Sam Crockett, Johnny Hanson, and Kyle Becker are relegated to one photographic picture display of their drop-dead gorgeous bodies, but not enough to fully appreciate their faces (in close-ups), backs, or whole bodies. Few-time Falcon/Jocks studs Kris Lord and Derek Cruise are nowhere to be found. Past favorites like Jack Dillon and Mac Reynolds remain covered up by their wet undergear leaving the viewer pretty much imaging what it would have been like to spend more on a bigger coffee table version of this book than to squint your eyes trying to decipher the size of Mac's endowment. And current sexy Falcon "Exclusive" hunk(!) Virgil Sainclair is given no space as he leads the new Falcon squad o' studs into the 21st Century.
On the positive side, the picture backdrops are top-notch, the paper quality is superior, and photographic compositions are indeed sexy. Falcon could have distributed a far more superior book in revealing more of their photographic archives.Read more ›

I guess I would not have been disappointed if the title of this book had not been "Legends". Read morePublished on March 10 2000 by WineGuy
