5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 17 Dec 2006

This review is from: The Complete Earth: A Satellite Portrait of our Planet (Hardcover)
There have been photo books of satellite imagery of the earth before, but I've not seen one to compete with this one. It's simply stunningly beautiful. The size helps the resolution and impact of the high quality images reproduced throughout the book. They are all printed in high quality on heavy duty paper and with informative but minimal text. It's the photographs themselves which are the subject of the book however and more text would have left less room for the imagery. It's a very large format book and quite heavy so a strong coffee table is needed - and a long time to enjoy the exquisite images on almost every page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding sense of size w/out losing detail, 15 Sep 2007

This review is from: The Complete Earth: A Satellite Portrait of our Planet (Hardcover)
This is a coffee-table book half the size of a coffee table. As someone with a substantial interest in very large format aerials of the Earth, this is the only book I have seen which gives a good impression of the size of the Earth's surface without sacrificing detail. This is partly due to its format, partly to its excellent organization. The images can hold one's gaze for a long time, because the fine detail is there in the midst of immense expanses. I bought two copies at a local shop for my great niece & nephew. This is an increasingly rare find.

This review is from: The Complete Earth: A Satellite Portrait of our Planet (Hardcover)
I love this book! If you are interested in maps and earth sciences you will love this book too. Its a very big book but it perfectly suits the content if it was any smaller it would not be as impressive.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Earth review, 10 Jan 2010
This review is from: The Complete Earth: A Satellite Portrait of our Planet (Hardcover)
If you like pictures of the earth taken from space this book is a must. Continent by continent the Earth is illustrated and explain. Close up pictures of certain areas give you more insight about our History and how the Earth that we see today has formed over the last 4.5 billion years. It leaves you wanting to find out more about the Earth and how the imagery was taken and how it can be interpreted. It needs a very BIG shelf!
