I’ve been obsessed with getting this book which was last in print in 2019. I’ve just come across Blackwells (who are a reputable UK chain) have 10+ copies in stock and ship to Australia for free. I’ve ordered mine but wanted to share as suspect I’m not the only person that’s want to get their hands on a copy. Apparently it’s US skewed but I like the aesthetic of vintage hifi and design enough that it’s still worth it to me.

wow, doesn't get a glowing review:

 

Within a few pages you'll figure out that the author is not by profession a writer. The simple declarative sentence is mostly out of the author's reach so one has to slog through overly complex, comma dammed, passive tense sentences that produce an inadvertently pretentious, off-putting narrative that to use audio terminology, is 180 degrees out of phase with a breezy, coffee table style book's intent.

The book's focus is unclear.

I think the reviewer is being a total prat.  I have this book and I love it.  Fantastic photography, period advertisements and lots of information.  Whats not to like?
