Cirque du Soleil is a fascinating group of performs. This book is filled with very beautiful photos of many of them performing. There's also a whole series of DVDs about various Cirque shows and music CDs from their shows available separately. If you have any interest in Cirque du Soleil then this is a book you must get.
