5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 14 May 2012
This review is from: Wisdom: 50 Unique and Original Portraits (Hardcover)
This wonderful, stunning book was given to me as a birthday gift and I treasure it. All of the people featured are over 65 years old and Zuckermann has included one full face close-up photo-portrait of each person, followed by other photos and then the person's own words. The full face photos are possibly the most striking feature of the book as there is no room to hide in these pictures. The chosen celebrities are seen with wrinkles, grey hair, skin blemishes and wonky teeth, but each one is amazingly beautiful. These are all people who have been successful in their field and have achieved great things in life, and their beauty comes from somewhere deep within.

These writers, actors, world leaders etc all have their own perception of "Wisdom" and of the ideas they would like to pass on to future generations and, inevitably, some are more profound than others. They are, however, all worthy of our attention and I think this makes this book more than a coffee table book. It is an inspiring and beautiful book.
