    This awful book is being discussed in detail on GHW2 and Facebook.

    For those who don't go there, it's essentially full of fake helmets!

    Regards,

    Looks like an infomercial. Some forums are that.

    I`ve asked the YT guy why he deactivated comments for the book vid.. because 80% of all helmets shown are fake, maybe?

    In all fairness, the reaction to this book is a good. 30 years ago this turd would've circulated and been believed by a lot of people. Nowadays the thing was publicly shredded in less than 24 hours and any Google search of its name is likely to bring up these discussion threads.

    I said I somewhat liked it as it is kind of like late 70s retro reference material. It would be decent reference if you were collecting in 1978.
