I read a couple of these stories years ago, but I decided to get this e-book and it has been a pleasant, nostalgic read. This stuff is still topical and it's an entertaining read. Forgot how good Swift was.

I read a few of the Tom Swift novels when I was young. So I was surprised on how much they kept up with the times and how innovative and entertaining they are to me as an adult. I recommend this for all those who enjoy a does of sci-fi nostalgia. Great read for kids too, if you can get them off their video games.
