Excellent book about Collins History  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is an excellent book about Arthur Collins and the massive company he built. It starts with his experimenting with amateur radio all the way through to the end where NA Rockwell takes over and forces him out.

Lots of good information from people associated with Arthur including dozens of people that worked with him over the years.

There are some decent pictures but the biggest issue was the were not arranged in the chapters so you could look at the pictures as you read the book. I assume they were grouped in just a few sections to cut publishing cost. More pictures would have been better.

They talked about most the products produced by Collins but oddly enough the R390 and related products was never mentioned.

One thing I did not like was the book was not written chronologically. It was grouped by various topics and regularly repeated information read in a previous chapter.

Great history lesson as Collins was involved in many things and had some major talent working for him.
