    Beautiful photographs

    Some of the images are perfectly superb, and enlightening. The portrait and interview with Andre Wyeth is worth the price of the bbok alone.

    Thought provoking

    The layout of the book was beautiful.
    While I enjoyed reading most of the author's thoughts on wisdom, some thoughts went on too long! Still I would recommend it.
