Alright so it looks like this site deleted my review for this particular book and I don't exactly remember what I had for that review nor am I in quite a position to reacquaint myself with the book, which makes this fun.

The book is a wonderful compilation of pictures of beautiful animals that are facing the end of the rope while at the same time combining a beautiful message that we need to be more at attention with the world around us.

The formatting of this book captures the eye to bring you

Absolutely gorgeous wildlife photography accompanied by a nice, informative, at times humorous narrative. I especially liked seeing so much Asian and Australian wildlife - to be expected in a book by an Australian writer and Japanese photographer. I also very much appreciated that each animal shown had a small "bio" at the back giving information about the species and locations (both zoos and wildlife reserves) where they could be seen.

The photography work of Mitsuaki Iwago is incredible in this book, and Bradley Trevor Greive's writing is thought provoking and emotional. Quick, easy, and very to the point. It left me thinking and is one of those books I turn to again and again. I suppose it's most interesting to an environmentalist like myself, however, with the world in it's current state...everyone should give it a chance.
