I always like the Life Magazine photo books. Their ability to capture some significant milestones is amazing. This book is a great gift for the difficult to buy for!

My family and I have had such a great time looking through this book. It sparks conversation, laughs and "ahas". Great buy. Great coffee table book. It catches everyones eye.

I am very pleased with this purchase. The pictures bring back many memories from years past. I feel the men I plan to give them to this Christmas will find them very thought provoking and enjoyable.
Excellent Photo's and Stories of Our History Jul 18, 2007
This booked turned out to be a prized gift for a history buff friend of ours. Absolutely LOVED IT and wants to share it with his grandkids. Interesting reading, in a beautiful format.
Too much of America. Apr 15, 2007
I picked up this book and "The Great LIFE Photographers" off the shelf of an art bookstore last night. Great books, a lot of emotion, great photography. Although, I wouldn't recommend buying these two books together. A lot of the photos are repeated, so one should be enough.
When I was going through this book, I was slightly annoyed by how "American" it is. I'm sure the Americans did a lot of great things. But about half a dozen of photos of baseball games/players?
Between those two books, I recommend "The Great LIFE Photographers" as it is smaller, more compact, and puts less emphasis on the US.
