Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This addition to the pictorial A Day in The Life of... series turns the camera's eye on the bounteous continent of Africa. Participant photojournalists from Cairo to Cape Horn snapped thousands of pictures, from which these 250 stirring photographs were selected. As in A Day in the Life of America and A Day in the Life of India, the pictures range from images of carefree play to poignant snapshots of abject suffering. All publishing profit from this book will be used to funds African AIDS education programs.

    Wow, I can┬┐t believe this is the same Africa I am from

    Coming from Nigeria, West Africa I was curious about this book and expecting to see the same pictures I see here in America. Africa portrayed as 1 big jungle. It was refreshing to see Africa as it truly is, a very diverse continent, with deserts, mountains, safari, cities the good and the bad. Like most Africans, we go to Europe and America on vacation, after seeing the pictures in this book; my next vacation is to tour my own continent... Africa.

    A fantastic pictorial

    This book is awesome - it shows the variety of Africa's landscapes and ways of life. It is sad how many people don't know (or care to know) about the African continent. I commend the photographers who took these photos, and I highly recommend this book to anybody.

    Truly Outstanding

    It warms my heart to see the beautiful depiction of my homeland in the pages of this book. Africa is too often portrayed in a negative light, and this is a great opportunity for people to see other aspects of the continent that they would not otherwise be exposed to. The Western world has long ignored the AIDS epidemic in Africa, but it's time that we all start doing the little we can to address the problem. Tell everyone you know to support the effort.

    AFRICAN AMERICANS -support your country'splight

    This book is delightfully well done- and to all those who profess themselves to be African Americans, you should read it and support your heritage country and its plight with AIDS. Great photography- a shame more people are not interested in this pictorial book of life!

    WOW!!! You can BUY THE PHOTOS TOO!

    This is a beautifully assembled book. I feel like I have learned so much about Africa and some of its people. The photographers have done a great job. I went to Book Passage, a book store in Cort Madera and saw the photos there. The back jacket flap on the book gives the URL to see/buy all the photos.

    FANTASTIC

    This book is beautiful and full of life. The photographs are so wonderful they leave you fascinated with the depth of Africa. It is even better that ALL of the profits go to AIDS education in Africa!

    Gorgeous Book--Good Cause

    A friend of mine bought me this book, since I'm going traveling in Africa this winter - its really gorgeous photography and interesting info. I especially like that they are giving their profits to AIDS education in Africa - very cool.
