Fearless Reviews (  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 Simpson, the Star Trekkers, and the more-or-less plain but venerable Duncans. 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 enough to earn a place in “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” for swimming a 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!
