GROUNDBREAKING BOOK ! July 15 2005
By Emlb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an extraordinary undertaking. The size of this book might seem too big but once you have it spread open on you dining table you will appreciate it and understand it as the size allows the photographs to deliver the power of the destruction of a tsunami wave. Never seen such good photography so big ! Is like having you own private exhibition. The photography is very impressive; I especially appreciated the photographs by Antonin Kratochvil. The written part of the book is as remarkable as next to a very interesting and accurate description of Tsunamis the introduction by Simon Winchester is very interesting. Also this is a non-profit project and I was very glad to help with my small purchase.... so easy to forget that 250,000 people did in this tragedy. Buy this book, support Doctors of the World, and help the many people suffering in this world! A great keeper.

Excellent Aug. 31 2005
By m_s_ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Considering the tragedy that is only beginning to unfold along the Gulf Coast, it's perhaps a little ironic that my copy of this "book" arrived on my doorstep just a day after Hurricane Katrina's passage through Louisiana and the South. The images inside bear an uncomfortable resemblance the images we're seeing now: mounds of destruction, survivors with haunted looks in their eyes, building foundations wiped clean of their structures.

I use the word "book" in quotes because this is really more like a softcover magazine, and a gigantic one at that. Most photos run across two full pages, and when it's spread open you're looking at 2-foot by 4-foot images of the tsunami's devastation. It's a size that's bulky, hard to manage; it forces you to confront what you're seeing and makes you look, and the vision of the exceptional photographers presented here keeps you looking.

VII photographers are known for being excellent at what they do, and this publication is another collection of their fine work. It's hard to see history repeating itself again so soon, and this time closer to home, but perhaps the lessons learned from the events these photographers witnessed will help ease the discomfort being felt by so many once again.
