Best AK books?

Saw a post about an AK book here, and I can't remember where. GP had commented the book was in the top five AK books. Am thinking about ordering a good AK book or two, figured I'd solicit some opinions.

There is a good one called Kalashnikov Arms compiled by Alexei Nedelin. It's copyright was in 1997. I'm not sure who sells it but it has 240 pages and a lot of photos of Ak's from around the world and all the different variations.

The Gun by Chivers is an account of the history of the AK, its design, manufacture, spread throughout the comm-block, etc. This is not a model by model, detailed features of each variety book. It is a good overall primer of what has to be the most successful post-WWII firearm of all times, and of automatic fire small arms development.

Reads like a page-turning mystery, it will grab you and before you know it 100 pages have gone by.

The estate I'm cleaning up has three Klashnikov books:
1. Kalashnikov Rifles and Their Variations(2013) by Joe Poyer $23.00 Amazon
2. Klashnikov AK-47 Series by Martin Brayley $44.95
3. Kalashnikov(1999) by John Walter $24.00 B&N

The Poyer book has some very good b&w picture, the Walter book has a lot of photos but mostly black and white, and the Brayley book has mostly color..

I can let all three go for $40.00 + shipping
