Book Reports

by Joseph C. Paradi

Background

Books about corkscrews abound today.  I fact, there is a large collection on this website, go see them.  But the prospective buyer of a book would need to know something about it before he or she makes a decision on which one(s) to buy.  At present, there are over 40 books on corkscrews with a number out of print already.  But if the corkscrew collector wants to buy just one or two, people who had bought the book before can help them making the difficult decision.  Hence, I am publishing book reports and comments by readers on those books where these are available.

Look at the list below and choose the one you want to know about.  Click on the title and go to the book report, it is that simple.  If anyone wants me to add their comments on the book, just send me an e-mail and I will put it up.  Enjoy!
