Fearless Reviews (Fearlessbooks.com) I haven’t been into yo-yos since I was about age
twelve, and I wasn’t any good with them. But this spectacular volume
comprising the toy’s lore, the comprehensive cataloguing of its every
permutation through the decades of the last century, not to mention a detailed
pricing guide, is enough to reawaken anyone’s inner child and inspire a series
of wows and gee whizzes. There are hundreds of
glossy, full-color illustrations of the spinners both inside and outside their
original packaging, from the official Smothers Brothers’ version to the Bart

The incredible care and detail that the author has lavished on this
encyclopaedic guidebook suggests both a true passion and no little degree of
all-American nuttiness — the latter charge being documented by a last-page
photo of Dr. Lucky circa the 70s, when he paused from his yo-yo practice long

half-mile with his foot in his mouth. I kid you not. Like the rest of this
astonishing volume, you gotta see it to believe it!
