From Library Journal
Bryan ( Friendly Fire and The National Air and Space Museum ) has produced a handsome book, based on the National Geographic Society's archives, celebrating the centennial of the Society. Magnificent photographs complement the text in telling the story of the institution, its leaders, and its journal, National Geographic . Bryan also addresses the issue of the National Geographic' s coverage of conflicts and wars, which Howard S. Abramson criticized in his National Geographic: behind America's lens on the world (LJ 3/1/87). Bryan has done an admirable job of presenting such a wealth of material. This should attract a wide audience, from scholars to laypersons. Joan W. Gartland, Detroit

When I bought this book a week ago, I was reluctant to believe that I had made a wise decision in buying it. But after it arrived in the mail and I saw those wonderful photographs and read the articles of this book, I realized just how wrong I had been! I usually dont buy the newer publications of National Geographic due to the decline in the quality of the articles over the years. These days, the articles published in the pages of National Geographic magazine are sub-par when compared to the articles of the 80's & 90's. What ever happened to the writers whos articles inspired me to become a Journalist? Anyway, I was worried that this book would be lacking in the quality of it's articles, but I was glad to discover that I was wrong! This is one of the best National Geographic books that I have ever read! It contains some of the best writing that I've ever seen, not to mention the breath-taking photography that has always made National Geographic such an icon among books and magazines!
If you're a fan of National Geographic, then I highly recommend adding this book to your collection!
And if you're a fan of fine photography then I highly recommend buying this book! It's packed full of more than 400 full color and black & white photographs!
And at the price that they're selling it for, they're practically giving it away! Buy it now, you wont be disappointed!
For those of us unable to travel to such exotic locations or live during the time periods profiled, this monumental book offers such an opportunity.
This purchase is money spent wisely.
