This is one of the most exciting books that National Geographic has published in recent times. One stunning image after another it lives up to its representation by showing the best photos found in the National Geographic archives. There is little text in this book and it relies heavily on the quality of the images selected. The sample photos and the video only give you a taste of what is between the covers. I must admit that I am biased, because one of my photos is in the book. It was an honor to have one of the only photos I ever sent to National Geographic to be selected by Annie Griffiths to be included in the book. As a photographer, I will be learning from this book for years to come. What makes beauty in a photograph is a question this book answers. It may seem like a small trivial question to some, but Annie gives an elegant answer with some of the most beautiful photos that represent the best of our world. This book helps reaffirm to me that photography can be a medium of how to view this world and live our lives in the simple pursuit of beauty. What greater purpose could a photographer or a person have? It is no wonder to me that the popularity of this book is rising, and I applaud Annie Griffiths for the theme of beauty that opens before your eyes with each turn of the page. When I sit for awhile with this book a quote from George Eliot comes to mind: "The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone." I treasure the moments that each photographer has brought to my eyes.

Buy it, just for the sheer beauty of the picutres. It is worth to keep and look over and over again. You have more understanding, more admiration for the people, the world we live in through these wonderful pictures. Thanks to all the photographers who could catch those fleeting moments, to Annie Griffiths and Nationa Geographic that put them together and share with us.

This is an awesome and awe inspiring tome. Great for the coffee table or high touch lobby or lounge. One will spend hours gazing at the photos. Be sure you make it to page 480-481. I'm kind of partial to that image.
