This review is from: Planet Earth: As You've Never Seen It Before (Hardcover)
This book is not up to the usual high standard expected of the BBC mainly due to the very poor quality of the majority of the pictures which are over or underexposed,out of focus,to small or just pointless-this is despite the high praise given by David Attenborough in the forward.
It should be noted that Attenboroughs only contribution is the forward,the author is A.Fothergill et al.
Following the forward there are 11 sections covering -thee whole earth,the great plains,the great sands,fresh water,rainforests.frozen poles,the great forests,mountain heights,the underworld,shallow seas and ocean ocean depths.All the sections are well written and informative (but badly in need of competent editing)but were no doubt better seen on TV.
I consider the book has over reached itself and has not given an adequate presentation of planet earth.

Your comment is absolutely spot on about print quality and I've thumbed it up. By the way, I'd very much appreciate if you could see my review of the other book in the series and approve of it too if you agree. Thank you :-)
