I bought this book based on my respect for the high quality of National Geographic Magazine in photography. I felt disappointed after I received this book. This is a year 2010 publication, so we should expect to see a collection of amazing photos published in recent years NGM, but the quality of this book could make you feel as if you watched many photo slides recorded on an old VCR tape in a few decades ago. Also, many photos were artificially composited in an old style that I really dislike. Unless I missed something here, I cannot understand the value of publishing a wildlife photo book using out-of-date material.

Format: Hardcover
I am a big fan of the National Geographic photographs, and this collection lives up to the high standards that I've come to expect from that publication when it comes to nature and wildlife photography. The photographs are absolutely stunning and really convey all the drama that wild animals in motion can elicit. I am not too particular about the "post production" manipulation of the photographs - I appreciate the overall artistic impression rather than the attempts at verisimilitude. This book is aimed at the general audience, and not necessarily at naturalists or other wildlife aficionados. This is a fairly large format book, but by no means the largest book of photos that you'll come across. At this size it is possible to fully appreciate all the details and the intricacies of various animals. I particularly liked the enlarged macro photographs of insects and other small critters. The aerial photos were also pretty amazing. Overall, this is one of the most beautiful collections of photographs that I have come across.

I bought this wonderful book as a gift for a safari guide in Tanzania. He already knows about the migration on the cover. Wanted a book that showed him migrations in other places. Sadly, there are no books about North America's greatest migration, because the American bison is essentially gone, limited to small areas on ranches and national parks. No longer will we see 20 million animals on the move.
