Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book is broken into two parts. Small essays on the hows and whys a picture was taken and the back story of it all. And the other is the technical and institution side of things. Bothe are very well done. I was just turned off by all the "Global Warming" mumbo jumbo. I wish he would have left the political stuff out of the book.
