A great book with gorgeous pictures that take you in a journey through the great miracles of nature. Nature that offers us so much and yet that we threat each day more than yesterday with our continuous expansion and raising needs.
The book raises awareness on our suffering planet but it gives us hope that we can still act in order to do things better.

Great companion book for the Our Planet series. This bool included all very best scenes from the films and also fact & figures that may be too much on screen. Really recommended for concerned global citizens.

Dechberoucí a děsivé. Dva hlavní pocity, které ve mně po přečtení a prohlédnutí téhle knihy rezonují. A stejné pocity, možná ještě intenzivnější, vyvolává stejnojmenný seriál. V přehledném rozdělení kapitol na základní ekosystémy se dozvíte základní ekologické a klimatické problémy 21. století. Dozvíte se o vymírání tisíců živočišných a rostlinných druhů, o znečišťování vod, mizení pralesů i tání ledovců. Je snad nevyhnutelné, aby si čtenář po tomhle uvědomil, jak velkou škodu jsme napáchali my, ...more

Amazing photography, just like the series. A bit depressing that so much beauty in the world is in jeopardy. This book highlights the urgency for humans to do something about the climate, sooner than later.

Phenomenal photography. Well researched text. Realistic explanation to people to get our act together. Pictures look like Earth is a great place to live! I've enjoyed a lot of nature books, but I'm finding new creatures here. On page 125 is a saiga, from Kazakhstan. Looks very "Dr Seuss". These pictures could individually win photo contests. Beautiful book.

Our Planet explains the effects of climate change on the many different habitats on Earth - much in the same vein as the Netflix show, but with more focus on climate change and pollution, than the habitats itself. It mentions examples of nature recovering as well as suggestions for solutions to many of the problems.

This book doesn't go into depth with the issues of climate change. It very much is a coffee table book, but it is a really good one at that. The explanations are well put, and the

The book to accompany the brilliant Netflix series is brimming with information and wonderful photos of our stunning world. It goes into detail of each of the ecosystems as described in the documentary: frozen worlds, fresh water, grasslands, deserts, forests, jungles, coastal seas and high seas. It's a book of reality, outlining what we have done and are doing to our world and the creatures that live there, but it also gives a message of hope that we can change - if we want to.

A beautiful companion to the Our Planet series. Gorgeous photos and more in-depth info than the series has time for. However, seeing these photos in motion (as it were) makes the series far superior to this book.

A beautifully informative and picturesque book calling for us to take more compassionate and caring action to allow nature to restore itself instead of succumbing to the perils of climate change and human misdeed.

Learnt much more about not only human negative impact on the planet, but also how beautiful the various habitats of the planet is and also how restoration really helps, like removal of dams, etc.

This had a lot of information in it, very informative.
Also, I appreciated that this wasn't completely hopeless; it gave sobering, scary facts but also hope.
