Review:

"'Natural History' delivers a fascinating photographic survey of everything from minerals to mammals." --Martha Stewart Living Magazine, December 2010

"A beautiful tome [that inspires] wonder and delight... 'Natural History' is kind of like having the Smithsonian Natural History Museum on your bookshelf...stunning." --WIRED.com, October 19, 2010

Magnificent and intriguing photographs and illustrations put [this title] on par with works of art and not just coffee-table art. [G]orgeous, fun, and so inexpensive it seems the publishers are prepared to lose money on each copy. Each page brings together illustration and develops information much better than a computer screen...Everyone with eyesight, from children through scholars, will find something to enjoy. Buy with your allowance if you have to." --Library Journal (STARRED review), November 1, 2010

"Extensive scope and exceptional photographs distinguish this ambitious work. Succinct commentary, notable for its clarity and authority, deftly burnishes the visuals. Highly recommended for high-school and public libraries." --Booklist (STARRED review), December 1, 2010

"This entire book is an explorer's delight, the type of book that can captivate a kid for life." --Chicago Tribune, October 19, 2010

"[A]n unrivaled visual survey of Earth's natural history, looking at every kingdom of life." --BookPage, November 2010

"648 pages of breathtaking nature photos and facts. From the noted publisher Dorling Kindersley." --Scholastic Parent & Child (Holiday Gift Guide) November 2010

"Sorting through stacks of gift books is a guaranteed joy ride through landscapes of beauty. And no book in 2010 was more beautiful than 'Natural History'. Another of DK Publishing's exquisitely realized reference guides, this one -- produced in collaboration with the Smithsonian -- is the perfect antidote for a world so enraptured by its smart phones that it has stopped seeing the wonders outside its door.

DK renders, in hundreds of pages of mesmerizingly detailed color photographs, our planet's incomprehensible variety of life: plants, flowers, fungi, rocks, minerals, microorganisms and a breathtaking menagerie of animals. Set down your Angry Birds for a sec and consider the unassuming majesty of the scarlet ibis -- or the apothecary rose, the peacock mantis shrimp, the crimson waxcap mushroom. If its quills make you quiver, wait until you get a load of a porcupine's teeth. You'll see the world anew, and be appropriately awed." --NPR.org, December 1, 2010
