Let's make one thing clear. I'm nature photographer and I really like cold regions. I'm pretty picky about photography books and even more so about photography books on colder regions. But every now and then some book manages to amaze me and this book is one of them.
This book's stories are something that you wish you have experienced. For example meeting with leopard seal when she (yes, it's a she) offers you a penguin to eat. And show breathtaking photos to illustrate it. Or narwhals. Paul's photography is diverse and thorough, and in no place in this book you feel that there should be less this or more that.
The book layout is very nice, informative and it's on decent quality paper. And the price of the book... I've paid 3 times more for 3 times less. So if you like snow, ice and creatures who like it, you have a winner here.
