A highly recommended read. Written by Paul M. Barrett. http://www.amazon.com/Glock-The-Rise-Americas-Gun/dp/0307719952 The book itself is about how a simple radiator manufacturer with zero knowledge of firearms managed to ask if he could compete on a bid to manufacture guns for the military, and managed to get it right. The book follows the Glock company, for good and bad throughout it's short history. I honestly couldn't put it down. Even if you hated Glocks, I think you could enjoy this read. If you're a fan, you'll definitely love it.
