I've received this book and read it with great pleasure. A part from the beautiful pictures that depict each light, the author tells the story of every lighthouse giving them life, telling their stories from the time of their construction, their evolution during the centuries and their appearance today. A good look is given also to the life of their keepers in these towers of the night, sometimes lost in the middle of the ocean. A great book for everybody, not only for ligthouse lovers.

A beautiful book on lighthouses around the world. Great pictures and clear and explanative texts, not just technical, but historic and culturally interesting, with a view to the human adventure of those who built or kept the lights.
Very good lecture, not only for lighthouse lovers. A book to be kept in a library together with other book that can be kept for future generation that can learn about the story of those lighthouses.
