Overview

Let’s Be Reasonable collects Sartore’s pieces—some aired on Sunday Morning, some never before published—pairing each story with the award-winning photography for which he is known.

Editorial Reviews

American Profile

"For this collection of essays and images, photojournalist Santore drew on various subjects encountered in his travels on assignment for CBS Sunday Morning and National Geographic magazine. By turns quirky, candid, whimsical and moving, they cover a wide range of topics, including endangered species, the power of laughter, state-fair food, mud, money, conspicuous consumption, and his own life and family at home in Nebraska."—Neil Pond, American Profile

Charles Osgood

“The notion that one picture is worth a thousand words has always seemed silly to me. It depends on what pictures and what words you’re talking about. Some pictures require no words at all. Some words create their own pictures in the mind of the beholder; different pictures for different beholders. In the case of Joel Sartore’s work we get both. Words that illuminate mere pictures, pictures that give shape, substance, light and shade to mere words. Together they are a uniquely personal artistic expression. As readers of National Geographic and viewers of CBS News Sunday Morning have discovered to our delight over the years, nobody but Joel Sartore would ever, could ever, combine the men women, children, animals, and Nebraska countryside in just this way. The insights, the sense and sensibility, the quirky humor, love, outrage and passion are his and his alone. That’s what makes his work and this book such a treasure.”—Charles Osgood, host of CBS News Sunday Morning and The Osgood File
