Like I said earlier, shame that this wasn't an attempt at satire.

I guess it’s not going to be on the New York Times Best sellers list.

The New York Times would probably give it a stellar review.

That is if experience would be somehow a constant that can be measured mathematically which it is not because if mistakes are passed on than the son really has nothing to add.

Now in this blurb the experience has grown another 35 years to 90 years !

To put this book into words is incredibly difficult. It is a document which records the findings of a life times accumulation and study of German Combat Helmets, of not only Peter, who started collecting in the 1950’s, but also his son James, who started in the late 80’s. A joint effort to accumulate one of the most comprehensive collections of headgear in existence, most pieces obtained prior to 1995 when the fakes started to get too good. A time before the internet! A combined 90+ years of knowledge.
