Ten Star Rating,
This review is from: Smithsonian Earth (Hardcover)
I just received this heavyweight book and was overwhelmed by the desire to read every page at one time: it was like being a child in a candy store. Which should I choose? The book is magnificently presented with wonderful photographs throughout - hundreds, perhaps thousands. The page edges are decorated beautifully with a different design per section,and the text is woven in among the graphics so that you aren't overfaced with masses of text at one time. The text is clear and flowing and on good quality paper. I cannot imagine that there is anything in this masterpiece that I might want to find and cannot. Clearly it cannot delve over deeply into every topic on a subject as grand as "Earth", but it has a jolly good try. The original price was reasonable - this lower price is an absolute bargain. An excellent book for adults and older children alike.
