A beautiful and well written book.
I bought this book simply for the photography yet, I was pleasantly surprised with the writing of this book. The author strives to show people the beauty that is out in our world that so few of us actually take the time to see or care to see. "It's just a nasty bug" is how many of us feel, as I once did. But it couldn't be farther from the truth. I started playing around with macro photography a few years ago and was amazed at how neat the smaller world actually is. Piotr Naskrecki shows his audience that these small little animals are actually a work of art and incredible to look upon. His skills as a photographer are masterful and the book is well worth buying simply for this reason. However, the writing was quite expertly done. I'm not an "ologist" of any kind and sometimes this class of book can either be grossly over my head and an absolute bore to read or it is chalk full of facts with little or no story or meaning behind it. This is a "GREEN" book and Mr. Naskrecki is of course telling us in his own words why we shouldn't destroy our natural environment with needed and learned facts in a way that grabs the reader and pulls them in. It's a fun book to read with an important and powerful message about nature's works of art. We wouldn't think of destroying the Louvre or the Smithsonian simply because they hold some of human kinds most important and beautiful examples of art. So why in God's name would we destroy our last remaining environments that hold Gods most gorgeous and precious works of art?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
