I have always thought that National Geographic has amazing photography. My boyfriend loves the magazine, so I got this book for him. The photos are split up into different themes, and they were more focused on gritty reality than beautiful, sweeping epic visionaries. Maybe it was just the last NG book I looked at, but I certainly remember a different feel to those photos. Not that these photos aren't excellent, though.Be sure to read the text as well, especially the little captions that tell you the subject of each photo. I actually had this on my coffee table for a little while, but decided to move it after a certain incident. A guest came over and flipped open the book casually, only to be met with a huge photo (this is a big book) of blood and guts and terrified faces. Just thought I'd warn, since one of the top tags here is "coffee table."
