This one-of-a-kind reference work provides essential data on some 10,700 manufacturers of automobiles, beginning with the earliest vehicle that might be so termed (Frenchman Nicolas Cugnot’s steam carriage, in 1770) and covering all nations in which automobiles have been built—67 in all. Not an encyclopedia or collection of histories, this is instead a very complete registry providing essential facts about the manufacturers: complete name, location, years active, type(s) of vehicles built, and other basic data. Compiled during more than 30 years of research, this reference even lists companies that produced just one car. Any builder of passenger-carrying vehicles on at least two but no more than eight wheels, of any design, either mass produced or built as one-off specials, experimental cars, prototypes, or kit cars, is included. Builders of internal combustion, steam and electric powered vehicles are all covered; companies that built only trucks, buses, racing cars, or motorcycles are not included. From A.A.A. to Zzipper and Argentina to Yugoslavia, this is an astonishingly comprehensive resource.

Recent auction results indicate a growing interest among collectors in plastic toy cars made during the 1950's and 1960's in Britain, mainland Europe, the USA and Hong Kong. This book is the first to take a systematic approach to a neglected area of toy collecting, providing valuable background information on the companies that made these toys and enabling collectors to identify many previously unknown items. Among the many famous toy companies examined are Tri-ang and Brimtoy (Great Britain); Norev and Minialuxe (France); Gama and Siku (Germany); Ingap and Politoys (Italy); Rico and Paya (Spain). In addition, light is shed for the first time on the history of many smaller and more obscure brands of plastic toy cars. More than 250 photographs of rare and unusual plastic toy cars are included, together with an indication of the prices these items are currently fetching on the antique toy market.

Steve Jobs

Un libro inspirador para los JÓVENES que no están dispuestos a renunciar a sus sueños

Autodidacta, visionario, genio, intuitivo, iconoclassta, diferente, inventor. Steve Jobs, el hombre que pensaba diferente. Un libro inspirador para los JÓVENES que no están dispuestos a renunciar a sus sueños. Más que aparatos electrónicos, lo que Jobs dejó a los jóvenes fueron importantes lecciones de vida: un modelo de coraje, de iniciativa y de creatividad. Ésta es su historia, escrita de la manera que a ti te gustaría que te la contaran. La trayectoria de este genio, icono del siglo XXI, fue impredecible desde el inicio. Al nacer, fue dado en adopción, abandonó la carrera tras el primer semestre en la universidad... Sin embargo, con tan solo veinte años, creó Apple en el garaje de su casa junto con su amigo Steve Wozniack. Y así surgió su marca personal: una rigurosa búsqueda de perfección, un modo alternativo de acercarse a los problemas y un estilo que le llevó más allá de todo límite. Steve Jobs no solo te interesará por sus ordenadores, iPads e iPods, sino por cómo era y cómo vivió su vida: un visionario con un complicado carácter que resultó ser todo un ejemplo de lo que se puede conseguir si uno persigue sus sueños y permanece fiel a sí mismo. «No dejéis que el ruido de las opiniones de los demás ahogue vuestra propia voz interior. Tened el coraje de seguir vuestro corazón y vuestra intuición. De algún modo, ellos ya saben lo que realmente quieres ser. Vuestro tiempo es finito, no lo malgastéis viviendo la vida de otro» Steve Jobs Reseñas: [...] La biografía de Blumenthal, una mirada en profundidad a la vida de este visionario, se convierte en la favorita de cara al público más joven. Blumenthal, antigua periodista de economía, utiliza un discurso que dio Steve Jobs ante una promoción de estudiantes de Stanford como la puerta de entrada hacia la que atrae al lector. Steve Jobs contó al público una serie de historias sobre los incidentes más importantes de su vida. [...] Su última historia trataba del cáncer, y su mensaje fue: «seguid los dictados de vuestro corazón y vuestra intuición». Por medio de una serie de entrevistas originales, un uso inteligente de las fuentes y un estilo maravillosamente fluido, Blumenthal ofrece un completo retrato de Jobs con sus bien documentados defectos, su estética tan original y clarividente, y su disposición a presionarse a sí mismo y a los demás con el objetivo de lograr lo mejor según su percepción. [...] La exposición que se hace sobre la relación entre Apple y la compañía discográfica de los Beatles, Apple Corps., resulta entretenida e instructiva. Un libro inteligente de una autora inteligente sobre un individuo inteligente. Ilustrado con fotografías. Adjunta un glosario y sus fuentes. Ilene Cooper, Booklist
