Lance E. Metz in Industrial Archeology 28(2):45-46 wrote, "... thoroughly researched, well designed, and easy-to read... The directions ...are simply superb. The entire volume's layout shows that great care was taken in the development of its clear and lucid graphic design. This reviewer cannot think of a more useful book for the industrial archaeologist or historical enthusiast.... lt sets a standard for other travel guides to meet."
