I was very excited when I saw this book arrived at my desk. The front and back covers are really vivid and beautiful as the book's title. However,once I truned the page over. I was very disappointed! Although the book contains a number of beautiful photos, the quality of the printing is very low. It is like looking at the book from the 70's from my parent's bookshelf. Most, if not all, photos are pale and grainy.
With printing technology today, I belive National Geographic could have done much better job, still at this reasonable price, in giving these great photos a respect they deserve. Seriuosly, my small ink jet printer at home can produce much better printing quality than what are in the book.
