I need not have been concerned, from cover to cover, this book is fascinating and beautiful, even when photos feature the less beautiful acts of humanity (mining, for example).
Everyone in our house from 9years old to, well, adulthood, loves to look through it.
It sits in good company on the coffee table.
Def recommend it for everyone who wants a mesmerizing / educational coffee table book - especially anyone who expects company to their home or business. Or as a give for family/friends.

Overview: A New Perspective of Earth
This is a so disappointing for a book whose main appeal is in its visuals, and which must have clearly taken a lot of work to put together. Looking at other reviews this seems to be a common problem. Will try to get a replacement sleeve, fingers crossed.
However, when the book arrived, the cover was dirty, and definitely felt like it was used before. There were greasy fingers all over it, and the cover was placed up-side-down over the book. Very disappointed to receive what appears to be a second hand version when advertised as new.
I had been a long time Daily Overview follower and I was really looking forward the publication of the book. I must say the final product exceeded my expectations. I bought it as a present to my wife and we both love browsing through the amazing shots.
