Excellent book with good coverage of every set I could find. Easy to follow and I particularly enjoyed the history section about the beginning of the transistor age. Very nice book!!
The rather long title says it all. It's a nice collection of transistor radios, their descriptions, price estimates, and hundreds of (mostly black and white) photos. Lots of good history here, along with tips for collectors. Not as fancy as some of the others, but a classic, and another must-have.
I love radios of all kinds...particularly table-tops and transistors. This book explores some of the most interesting transistors ever made. I grew up in the late fifties and early sixties, and I have great memories of falling asleep with the earphone of my Global 711 in my ear as the various stations around the country signed off the air playing the Star Spangled Banner. KIf you're not a collector, you will be after reading this book! Wonderful seller to buy from as well
Collectors will find this book somewhat helpful and useful,but people who are merely curious will not be satisfied.All of the radios covered are clinically describedin very short text entries.There are very few photos in the book.Values of certain models have changed a bit over time,especially due to the influence of eBay,but to my knowledge the book has not been updatedsince it was first published many years ago.If you think you may want to own a copy of this book,find one that you can look at in person before you buy it.
It was and is very pleasant to be able to see the radios I used to have and seen at the stores back in the 60' s and 70's.
