From Publishers Weekly
These 150 photos of Earth taken from space are accompanied by quotes from members of the multinational Association of Space Explorers. PW said of the hardcover: "The pictures are spectacular" and "the space explorers' comments . . . range in eloquence, but are uniformly affecting and well-intentioned."

From Library Journal
This is an oversized browsing book filled with magnificent pictures taken from space. As can be guessed from its title, most of the photographs are of portions of the earth's surface. The concise text consists of short quotations from astronauts and cosmonauts describing the emotional impact of being in space. Naturally, the comments are predominantly from Americans and Soviets, but among the 18 nations represented are France, Germany, Syria, and India. Each commentary is given in the speaker's native language with an English translation. A truly beautiful book. Harold D. Shane. Baruch Coll., CUNY
