This book is actually two books in one. The first is the text, which was written by Valerius Geist, and the second is the photos, which were taken by Michael H. Francis. The first book fails badly, but the second is magnificent. Geist's text is so horrifyingly unsatisfactory that it could be used as an example of every mortal sin that an author must avoid. It is grotesquely verbose, condescending, pedantic, and uninformative, and it is stained by an offensively propagandistic tone (the standard "man is evil...nature is good" oversimplification). As though these flaws aren't bad enough, it is shot through-and-through with inappropriate anthropomorphisms and a teleological mindset that is glaringly anti-scientific. These shortcomings completely undermine Geist's embarrassing attempt to pose as the consummate scholar. As a result, I found it painful even to skim the wholly unsatisfactory text. The photographs, by contrast, are superb! Each is a virtual work of art, and as I looked at them, my thoughts alternated between awe and a deep curiosity. How did the photographer get these shots! Surprisingly, the captions for these photos are the best part of the book's text, greatly surpassing Geist's verbose prose with their succinct clarity and relevance. In light of its flaws, is this book worth its price? I don't think so. Francis's photos are truly outstanding, but Geist's text has inflicted mortal wounds.
