Not worth buyingユーザー レビュー - Overstock.com
This book is just awful. My son is very dissapointed and I feel I wasted my money.The book is tiny and the pages are in black and white, very few photos, just very poor quality. I should have bought the large print version. Do not buy this book for a child or teenager, they will be disappointed.

I did not reliaze this was the size of a regular paper back book! I would recommend you purchase the hardback book which is bigger and better illustrated.
