I have no imagination!

This below is the THIRD book, identical with the two first, that I bought.
The very first I gave to friend and then immedeately ordered a new!
Now that book is so often read and re-read, and used as a base of knowledge,
that it's falling into pieces, or rather pages I have no imagination!
So, now I bought my third new one, and I'm happier than anytime before,
because I know how valuable it is to my whole interest.
It's the best book about Time and Watches ever written.
Probably because it's seen in an absolute unortodox way,
the author is Professor of Economics, Emeritus, Harvard.
For those who still not own one,( I know I talked about this book before ),
I strongly recommend you to buy one.
It's tremendous cheap, considering it's real value, and you still can get a new one.
( Perhaps I should buy a box of them, and stock them, since I don't have any winecellar... )
Your horological world will be added a new dimension I have no imagination!

For all those interested in watches this is a great read! Landes has a great sense of humour and makes a comparatively dry subject extremely interesting. The first edition ends around the time of the rise of quartz watches and the author laments the decline in mechanical timepieces. The edition shown was written after the resurging interest in mechaical watches, so there is some rewriting and I believe an additional chapter. In any case I highly recommend this book as well. If you were to choose only one book about the devlopment of time keeping and watches, IMHO, this would be the one Joseh
Agree Doc, this book is a must read for all horology aficionados (nt)

Thanks for another reference Doc!  I enjoyed the book Longitude by Dava Sobel and understand there was a movie made from it.  Has anyone seen this movie and can provide a review?
