This book is a photographic buffet, and reveals all the past and present wonders of the world. It is a great coffee table presence, and was quickly processed by Amazon and delivered promptly and safely by this supplier.

I am one of those people who laments the demise of Life magazine at least once a week, even if it's been gone for some three decades or so. Some images are still indelibly inscribed in my mind; for example, the clever presentation of the cultural impact of the first Star Wars movie (1976) by showing two trick-or-treaters costumed as their favorite characters.

This book about past and present Life Wonders of the World does not disappoint. You may think you know what This and That look like, but a large part of the Life magic (and that of its philosophical close cousin, National Geographic) comes from the brilliance of the photographers, who invariably find a new way to show you something and help you gain a new appreciation for it. Already a shot from this book of the Eiffel Tower taken from a nearby rooftop and not at a distance from the ground is engraved in my memory.

Life The Classic Collection Wonders of the World
I never thought I'd win this but I did and it's a hardbound book with 140 pages of some of the best photographs I've ever seen.
The book is broken up into sections: wonders of the world, 7 original wonders, wonders of today, natures' wonder and 7 Life wonders and more
The one I love particularly is the one of the Eiffel Tower. Each photo is given a few chapters to tell it's story.
Love the lights and the angle of the tower.

I received this book from SynapseConnect, Inc.

'No kidding. If you are a doctor, get this and your patients will complain less and less about the amount they wait. It's great! Maybe the only thing that would discourage you from getting this is that many of the photographs can actually be taken from the book, taken and framed. Yes, they are prints of photographs. So doctors may have some patients walking out of the office with that sweaty picture of Marilyn Monroe. That could be taken care of, however. And if you are looking for a great book to entertain you and your guests, this will serve the purpose wherever you are.
