Glock is a book about the maker of the gun as much as the gun itself. The story goes into great detail of the genius of the American marketer and how he was treated by Goustov Glock and the politics of the time when the Glock replaced the Smith and Wesson revolver.
The gun really does shine as a unique weapon among the tried and true revolver and the other semi auto revolvers.
The author covers every issue this gun was involved in including the corporations ability to move from country to country to skirt tax laws, the NRA hard lines, the gun control lobby fear tactics, the governments weak gun laws, and the lawsuits from gun owners who accidentally shoot themselves and expect to be compensated.
I really enjoyed the research and conclusions drawn by the author who also revealed his own feelings towards gun control, safety, training and necessity.
Good info on how the brain works, not just with music. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was the heavy use of Evolutionary science. However it flows smoothly and answers many questions. One was why I can read without remembering what I read. I used to be a typesetter, transfering words and letters from customer's copy to my computer files to be printed and used on the printing press. The first answer came from the finding that the eyes or ears transfer information to several places in the brain, which explains why I could read text and type it into the computer without ever knowing what I typed.
Books like this are also helping me with my self taught college education.
