    Saw it in Amazon and it's only 18 bucks. From what I have read and seen it sounds like a decent Glock read.

    I bought the e-book. It's a good read. Worth the $$$s IMO...

    Great read and also gave some interesting information on various gun control efforts.

    I bought the Kindle version, and it is fascinating. It made me a little embarrassed to own Glocks, though. They sure play dirty - especially the old man. Assuming the book is an accurate portrayal, of course. It WAS written by a New York journalist.

    Great book !
    Interesting how, with a lot of hard work, and the right people.
    Gaston Glock, who knew nothing about guns, was able to create and very quickly mass market a revolutionary new type of gun.
    A accurate gun with no hammer, half plastic, and more reliable than any other pistol, ever.
    If it weren't for Glock reliability, most Law Enforcement would still be carrying revolvers.
