I agree; he is one of the best writers on landscape and natural history that we have seen in many years.

I would +1 with a !! this one. There are two versions, this one and the Graphical Guide. They approach the same compositional material from different perspectives, I have and recommend both.

The book uses side by side comparison of similar photographs to discuss why one photo is superior to the other. This book is a pleasure to read and is packed full of Art Wolfes' beautiful photographs.
Couldn't agree more Amazing book!
