Format: Hardcover
Over the course of a long airline flight, I picked up Halstead's book and found myself unable to put it down through three cross-country legs (even through the obligatory bit about putting everything away and raising tray tables... but I digress). Far more than the tale of a photographer's look through the lens over the course of several decades, this book provides insights, commentary and background to some of the most photographed events in the last half century... as well as the pictures themselves.
Exceptionally well written for a guy who is known for his reporting via a lens, Halstead's work is at times, funny, always intriguing and a thoroughly engrossing read.

I was in Vietnam and enjoyed the photos. Later I was on USS Midway during Saigon exacuation. While Dick's story wasn't entirely accurate, it was close enough and once again, I rally enjoyed the photos.

This book is not just a book of photography, but the story of the life of a photojournalist. The photography in this book is great, but I enjoyed reading the text even more. The dialog is entertaining and informative, and it is almost like the author is talking to you, like in a conversation. You are not going to be disappointed if you purchase this book. This is not a "Coffee Table" book, but rather one that you are going to want to pick up and read. Outstanding job, Mr. Halstead!

When I pick up a book to read, it must have adventure, personal reflections, a soul to inspire me, and the author who I can admire -and consider a friend for life. Halstead's life, his photojournalistic gifts of excellence, and sense of historical values, meets all of my expectations. His "Eye on the World" - and his interpretations of each photo brought excitement and true understanding to my reading experience. I felt as I was on the same delicious trip with the author.
Regardless of ones interest in life, Halsteads book will turn your eye on adventure, and turn you loose on the world!

Not long after I started reading the book I found it to be a lot more than a lifetime Photographer's experiences. It is a thinking and caring Photojournalist's eye witness insight to Historical events of the latter half of the 20th century.Dirck gives a romantic vieu of Saigon City with the range of honest emotions that war times generate. He also presents unique insights to the performances of past presidents that served while he was a White House photographer. Dirck does this with an eye for significant events through both word and pictures. The historical and artistic content of the pictures is a bonus.A rewarding read.

From Douglas Kirkland

This book is an incredible and riveting look at the some of the most important events from the last fifty years.

Not only is Dirck Halstead a great photojournalist but he is also a superb raconteur. There is a wonderful mix of war, politics, Hollywood and humanity which make this book difficult to put down once you've started reading it.

We recognize many of the iconic images but the words give an important dimension which adds still more to their meaning. Congratulations Dirck Halstead and thank you for bringing us this significant treasure.
