Areas covered, other than Mrauk, are the standard venues: Mandalay, Bagan, Inle, Yangon. Lots (and lots) of monks (young), kids, temples and Inle Lake fishermen. But not much in the way of everyday life or street and countryside scenes, which many find to be the most compelling aspects of the country. He pays thanks to the man who has led him through the country on "many" occasions but he is never seen (perhaps understandable in this politically charged country.) Nor is there any reference to his camera gear other than a posed shot of a boy holding an SLR with a nice lens.
Biggest problem is that an overwhelming percentage of the pictures are posed. All of them, I would guess. That's not bad but it does get a little stale. Virtually nothing in Yangon other than more monk shots. Nothing on transportation and only a few snippets of text.
I do understand his love for Burma. Kudos to anyone who can produce a book. It's impossible to fault his attraction but it really doesn't show. I would hope that his visits have been more than the specific photo shoots that they seem to have been.
All in all: non-dimensional. And not a shot of the Irrawaddy.
Would be nicer (and the reviewer could be more benevolent) at a considerably smaller price than the sticker indicates.
