    1. Not your ordinary coffee table book Tom Ang uses iconic photographs to put a fresh face on photography s history.

    2. A beautiful book with great coffee table value One I love to browse and which makes for great conversation.

    3. DK rarely prints anything that disappoints This is a delicious table sized book meant for sipping It would make a nice gift for someone who is a photographer or camera wielding enthusiast The changes in cameras, lens and even subject ideas for photo taking is richly depicted The writing is easy to understand for laypeople However, I believe it is the images Tom Ang selected that really draws a person into the book A little of something for everyone to enjoy

    4. An excellent book to pick up when you have just enough downtime to read something interesting, but not enough time to get sucked into something completely Its near perfect balance of text to high quality imagery on every page is a huge plus, and as the title implies, it covers essentially the whole range of photographic history.

    5. A picture says a thousand words, or so goes the idiom, and the sweep of recent history enforces this notion stories have been told through the camera lens for the preceding two centuries and that is only increasing now with the ubiquity of social media and the accessibility of modern digital photography.Full Review ow UMan5

    6. Finally finished this beautiful book that brought me back to some amazing photos I have admired and a few I have re created myself I made a list of photographers I want to read about so I can discover or rediscover their great works.

    7. I loved reading through this book and seeing so many photos that illustrate the history of photography, the development of various technologies, and the work of famous photographers along the way I would never buy it or own it as there was small bit of nudity in it.

    8. Visually the book is stunning, showing many of the best photographs, and giving a brief biography of the creators of these images Read here.

    9. Really impressive book Large, with great visuals Lots of iconic, world class photos, and fairly thorough explanation of the history of photography.
