Didn't know much about this book before i bought it, but i'm interested in nature/landscape photography, so i thought i'd give it a go, especially for the price, very reasonable.
Well i'm very glad i did, it is a lovely book, full of rich, interesting pictures, that really give a feel for the environment he chose to carry out this 1 picture a day project in.
Alongside the many images is the text, supplied by Jim Brandenburg, this helps brings the pictures to life and gives you an idea of why he did what he did and how it affected him. There is not loads of text, but just enough to set the scene on the endeavour, and reflect on its repercussions, it's very honest and thought provoking stuff.
The end of the book is dedicated to him revisiting the sites he had previously photographed, after a tornado had ripped through the area, in some ways i found this the best part of the book, obviously the images of destruction and chaos in areas that a few pages back were perhaps serene or ordered, have a certain interest to them, but it was mainly due to the text supplied by Jim, as he visited these areas and how it made him feel, not just about what he was seeing, but how the human race as a whole deals with the power and unpredictability of nature, how they cope, or not, with something they cannot control. I found it pretty inspiring.
So overall, if you like nature photography, and you like pondering how we interact with it, both good and bad, and you want to do this without sepnding too much money, then this is the book for you.
