Just wrote my review on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2OQ56RPKKPWH2

Sven, this is a masterpiece. You should be very proud. And at $50, this book is a no-brainer purchase.

Thanks Justin! Store price is actually $60.- bucks, but for the size and over 800 images on almost 400 pages, that is still pretty good

Bought mine for $60.00 at the ITMP and it is incredible. It's in a good home.

$60?! Good God, I had no idea. $50 is a deal, but $60? Who are you, Satan's Comcast representative?

Received my copy yesterday. What a pleasure to hold a properly heavy art book in my hands, reeking of fresh ink and new paper! You'll never get that sort of tactile sensation from a Kindle. I was also quite happy to see the glorious cover of Ballyhoo Magazine's Hula Hula Number issue on the very first page, especially since I have the entire issue framed and hanging over my bar:

A triumph, bigbro!

Thank You - That means something from such a veteran of Tiki and other pop research!

Got my copy yesterday in the mail. I'll be poring over this volume for years to come. Thank you Sven for creating another informative and fun (and absolutely massive) masterpiece! (I'll be writing an amazon review later this week)

You are too kind, sir.

I really enjoyed the pre-Tiki section, as that's where a lot of my interest resides. If you ever need any images for future research, I have plenty that I'd be happy to share.

Finally have a moment to look through mine, just a beautiful book, fabulous pictures and such high quality paper...that is rare these days. Tucking my back-up copy into storage. This is going to take me a while to read...it will be like an epic journey...it will be fun.

Amazon review up.

It's going to take me a long time to take in this whole book. Truly massive and awesome.

man oh man !! this can hardly be called a book. it's more like a tome. It's huge and heavy and chock full of tiki goodness!! I always said, "if they don't understand you, hit them with a bigger hammer" - and sven packs a wallop with his third and largest of literary hammers yet.

The Birdman of Rapa Nui flies
His beak contains the vaunted book
