WOW! April 22 2011
By jaybird - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As a professional whale watch captain and photographer, all I can say is wow!
I have taken hundreds of thousands of pictures of whales and I dream of taking pictures this good.
This book is fantastic, the pictures are amazing (the best in the world) and the stories tell you how he got the pictures.
The book takes the reader right to when and where Flip captured the picture.
I could never, would never, get in the water with Killer Whalers, Sperm Whales, sharks etc.
I have purchased every book about whales that I could find and this is the best.
Thanks Flip.

A "whale" of a Story! April 8 2011
By Cece - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Flip Nicklin is National Geographic's "whale guy", so if you love whales and photography, this book is for you. It is the story of a man who found his life's passion in underwater photography, and how lucky for us all that he did. Flip Nicklin's photographs, especially those of his beloved whales, are stunningly beautiful and open the window to a world most of us would never otherwise see. His photographs will inform you and they will move you; his story will inspire you. This is a book you will pick up again and again...and again.

Stunning Photographs of Gentle Giants! June 9 2011
By Michael OConnor - Published on
Format: Hardcover
There are books and then there are labors of love! AMONG GIANTS, A LIFE WITH WHALES is a labor of love, more specifically 'Flip' Nicklin's heartfelt tribute to the awe-inspiring whales that populate the earth's oceans. Filled with stunning images and evocative text, AMONG GIANTS is one awesome book.

Since 1979, Nicklin has roamed the globe, snapping photographs of 30-odd species of whales, dolphins and other marine life. Associated with NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC for many years, Nicklin became their 'main man' for whale imagery. His photographs have introduced and entertained the public to the magical marine world of whales and educated them as well.

AMONG GIANTS is Nicklin's chronicle of his life with whales, a life that began with a chance encounter with a humpback and broadened to encounters with blue whales in the Pacific, Great Barrier Reef minke whales, sperm whales in the Indian Ocean and so many others. The photographs alone are worth the $40.00 price tag; they are AWESOME!!! Yet Nicklin's descriptions of his various encounters along with the fascinating information he shares on whales make this book an appealing purchase.

Whether you've gone eyeball-to-eyeball with a whale in some ocean or just have an interest in these magical creatures, AMONG GIANTS will be just what the doctor ordered. It opens up a previously-unseen world in spectacular - and touching - fashion. Highly recommended.

Faith in our planet April 17 2011
By Elizabeth Lawrence - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
With all the sad and horrific events going on right now, I found Nicklin's book to be a beacon of hope. The pictures are so beautiful and calming. The text is so simply written it is the perfect anecdote to the craziness on the news. This life's work in pictures opens up a mysterious underwater world of possibilities. Thank you Mr. Nicklin for sharing your view of the world of water with us. We needed to see it.

The real deal! April 10 2011
By Michael Bennett - Published on
Format: Hardcover
At last, an elegant coffee table book that contains not only incredibly beautiful pictures, but also tells a compelling story, (and is also the perfect supplemental companion to my new "Devil Dolphins of Silver Lagoon" book Devil Dolphins of Silver Lagoon and Other Stories: Adventures of a Reluctant Photographer's Assistant)... But seriously, this work is a remarkable achievement chronicling a remarkable life, and is a must-have for anyone interested in whales, cetacean research, our oceans, our planet...actually everyone needs this book. Thank you Flip, for allowing me to be a part of this! And here's to more adventures...
