5.0 out of 5 stars Best coincidence ever!, March 2 2012
This is a gorgeous picture book, but also filled with real and detailed information, written by someone who loves the subject. Worth getting, for yourself, or as a gift.

The coincidence? I'd been taking the occasional interesting artifact in to work to show my techie colleagues. One day, after looking around for something unusual, I grabbed a radioactive Polonium based anti-static brush made in 1957! (Amazingly, it's still made, and available on Amazon!) They were amazed, and a bit scared :-), even though it was radioactively dead after 55 years. When I got home, this book was in my mailbox.

Some of my AAs definitely do not have full capacity according to the charger! Whether because of age, defect, or just poor… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Very beautiful, Oct. 5 2009

I feel transported back in time to a performance by Bach and his pals. Thank you.
