Whether you are interested in toy vehicles or real buses, this book offers a feast for the eyes. An astounding array of model buses from some 20 nations - diecast, plastic, tin-plate, and cardboard - awaits you; the material is extremely captivating. But beware, if you do not already collect model buses, you may find yourself doing so after perusing this book. Also included are many antique and rare models one doesn't see all the time. Granted, not every model is included and the survey could be a little stronger regarding models from the former Soviet Union. Nevertheless, this book has a lot to offer and I heartily recommend it to anyone with more than a passing interest in buses.
This book seems to hold it's value, and after purchasing a used copy, I now understand why. It's an outstanding reference book, color photos, and details on each item. The buses are separated by manufacturer. You will not be unhappy with this purchase. By far the best toy bus reference available today!
