I must admit that when I first received this book, I thought it would be just about the restoration of images from the original Baird Phonovision recordings. Well, it is much more than that. It reads more like a television history book, all connected by Baird and his recordings. If you read this book, you will have a much better appreciation for Baird's contributions to television as well as for the work it took for Don Mclean to bring back these images to us in real time. This is a fascinating book, once you start, you won't want to put it down. The book contains a large number of photos and illustrations, many of them the first time in print and all of them of the very best quality. I recommend this book to you highly.
