I still recommend that you buy this book simply because these this is a great collection of some of National Geographic's greatest photographs, but I highly recommend picking up "The National Geographic Society: 100 Years of Adventure and Discovery" to go with it. If this book has most of National Geographic's greatest photographs, then 100 years of adventure and discovery has, well... I dont want to say that it has the rest of them, but it at least has another large chunk of NG's greatest photographs. Oh, and did I mention it's cheap too? Seriously, I only paid 25 cents plus shipping & handling for my copy of 100 years of adventure and discovery!
