Earth from Above: 365 Days
For a new perspective on Earth every day of the year, Earth From Above: 365 Days can't be beaten. Yann Arthus-Bertrand's aerial photographs taken from high vantages all over the world are startling and beautiful. The book's format, short and wide, makes it an ideal desk companion for anyone who loves outdoor photography, anthropology or ecology. From tropical atolls to the highest mountain peaks, Earth From Above offers a point of view previously enjoyed only by pilots and astronauts. --Therese Littleton

A true family heirloom.
This is a book that I would have loved as a child. Don't get me wrong, I love it today but a child would bask in the wonders of the Earth for hours with these images. It's hard to believe that some of the locations in this book are on this planet. There is such beauty and awe in these pictures. At almost every turn of the page there is a "wow" coming out of my mouth. Well worth the money. The only gripe I have is the reference of the locations. You have to flip around all over the place to find out the location of the photographs. There does not seem to be any order connecting the photos to the descriptions. Don't worry though! Still get the book.
Unique and wonderful
There have been many photography books about the earth; what makes this book special is not only that many of the photos show places, objects, and people that are rarely photographed, but also that the composition of all of the photos shows places, objects, and people as you've never seen before. I also found the references annoying at first, but without the references it is easier to lose yourself in the beautiful photographs. It is a book your grandchildren will marvel at decades from now.
The composition and choice of photographs presented in this book are incredible. The commentary, also, is very well done, but the photographs are just amazing. You will enjoy every page!
