Its small size limits the pictures to a single side view unfortunately. Would love to have had top views also, thus only four stars given. But the number of planes covered if unbeatable for this price. Very good book.

Michael Sharpe did a great job on this book. It covers every jet from the 1st (Me262) to the F-22 Raptor. It even has the XB-70 Valkyrie and the loser to the Raptor the YF-23A. If you like jets you should get this book.
