Great present for my Dad - he loves it and can just dip into it as and when. He was born in 1940 so finds it all very fascinating.

This is a lovely book full of memoirs of the decade. My parents, for whom I bought it, were delighted with it.

The 40's decade book was a birthday present for my dads 80th birthday.The problem was the print is tiny and was very difficult to read even for me (in my 50's)So perhaps the font size needs to be adjusted.
Absolutely brilliant. My father loved the A3 embossed book... Great quality and service... Thank you..

Not impressed with customer service
I raised an issue with the company but they have not responded. Basically I asked for an invoice for the TWO books I ordered (at a cost of over £60). I wanted to check costs as on the website the nice gift box is advertised as being free but when I purchased my books I was charged £5 per gift box. Also postage advertised at just over £3 but I'm sure I was charged more than this (per book)! I look forward to perhaps getting a response/explanation now.

Very satisfied with the product. Only 1 package came. A little worried because I ordered 2 books.
