Editorial Reviews

Review

“There's no judgment, just observation and in many cases reverence, making for an inspiring reading and visual experience.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Humans of New York

“Some street photographers hide behind phone booths like paparazzi so their subject won't be aware of their presence, but for Stanton it's precisely that awkward interaction, the tearing down of the wall between strangers, that he covets.” ―The Huffington Post on Humans of New York

Format: Hardcover
While Brandon's first release was an excellent book of photography, it lacked many of the stories behind the individuals. I came to find HONY on facebook and feel the story behind the photo is half the experience. With his newest release, it all comes together to give you the full HONY package that most people have come to know and love. This book is a bargain for all the passion and work that Brandon puts into this project.

If you are deciding on whether or not to buy the book, consider the following, which Brandon posted on the HONY facebook page: "I want to take a quick opportunity to remind everyone that HONY is advertisement free and almost entirely financed by book sales. (The only exception being income from a handful of speeches I give every year.) Proceeds from books have been used to pay for trips to twenty different countries over the past year alone. Even when working with large organizations like the United Nations or UNHCR, I’m always very careful to cover all costs and reimburse any expenses. I do this so that the content on HONY can remain entirely independent, self-directed, and transparent. By purchasing a book, you can help HONY continue to grow in a way that remains focused on telling people’s stories--- and nothing else. Thanks to everyone for your continued support."

This book. THIS BOOK. I've purchased all three Humans of New York books and have loved them all, but in Humans of New York - Stories, it all comes together. The photography is expressive, and the stories are equal parts soul-crushing and uplifting. The masterful way that Brandon interviews his subjects really shines through. I've followed Humans of New York for 4 years and am just in awe of it's revolutionary transformation and it's power to do good in this world. Even something went unspeakably wrong and against all odds the book was garbage (it isn't) you STILL should buy it, if for nothing more than to cast a vote of support for the JOY, LOVE, and EMPATHY that HONY provides. This is a voice of hope and kindness in a world that can occasionally strip you of both. In HONY there is no "Us vs. Them" - there's only WE and Brandon has shown us that together, WE can do anything.

By far the best money I have spent on any book in the past few years. I recommend the Humans Of New York Stories to anyone and everyone. In fact, it will be the go to Christmas gift for my family this year. Elegant, original and pure, this book represents humanity at its most candid and lovable.

I have been anticipating October 13th for weeks now and it has finally come. This book arrived at my house at 11:58am it is now 1:54 pm and I just finished it 10 minutes ago. I laughed and cried. It was everything I hoped for. 5 stars isn't enough

I don't think I've ever reviewed a book before, but I just got this one yesterday in the mail. I haven't been able to put it down. I spend a lot of time in my own head and this book makes me realize that everyone has an amazing story. There are so many dark and beautiful things in the world, but so many times the monotony of our own lives and routines keep us from appreciating what's great and contributing solutions to the not so great. I absolutely would recommend this book! The photography is also outstanding.

I really wish people weren't giving this book poor reviews because the kindle version is (apparently) crap. It's a beautiful book with stories that make you glad to be a part of the human race. I smiled the whole time I read it. It's very big, well worth the money. Brandon has a true gift for getting the best out of everyone he interviews. If I had the money I would buy one for everyone I know. Just don't get the kindle version....

Brandon Stanton's vignettes of New Yorkers on Facebook are captured in this book, 425 glorious pages in all color, complete with their stories. Chances are if you're reading this review you've already liked the Facebook page and follow his portraits regularly. Brandon Stanton went from a college grad working on Wall Street to a photojournalist. His quest to capture people of New York in their daily lives has led to more than 15 million followers, and their heartfelt appreciation for the work he does every day.

In his short and poignant stories, combined with beautiful portraits, Brandon captures moments of people's lives, and sometimes an entire life story is captured in a couple of sentences. Many make us cry, some make us laugh, but all of them invariably show us how much we have in common. These posts are read by people across our planet, in every country. And it's heartwarming to see there are people in every country who identify with these stories, as they capture emotions we all have felt some time in our lives. At the very least, we empathize, as these stories give us a window into the subjects' lives.

Like most people, I had already read most of the stories in this book on HONY Facebook page already, it's my daily source of inspiration and hope, joy and sadness, and a feeling of connection with others as we all read his stories and then the comments. Sometimes, people share their own stories in the comments that are equally evocative but more often, they are words of encouragement for the person in the portrait. Sometimes, I think the world is becoming increasingly cynical until I read these comments and then I realize all across the world we our connected by our capacity to feel love, and to empathize.
