Bikes of Burden Review May 21, 2008
Having just returned from Ho Chi Minh City, this book perfectly captures the amazing street scenes we witnessed and found just unbeleivable. Every street has bikes and scooters with mind blowing cargoes of goods of every description carried on the most flimsy looking machines, some carrying groups of people, 3, 4 and even 5 including babies and children. We tried filming, but where do you stop, so many varied goods being transported. This really is a must have book for anyone wanting to capture the everyday street scenes of this frantic city. It is beautifully produced and a great "coffee table" book which fascinates everyone who looks at it.
THe pictures in the book are VERY true to everyday life in Vietnam Feb 13, 2008
After a visit to Viet Nam this book really brings back wonderful memories of the various sights we saw everyday! The photography is beautiful. A great coffee table book to remind one of their travels!
Awesome book!!! Must have after our trip to SE Asia. Dec 17, 2007
This book was a must have after seeing much of this craziness first hand in Vietnam and Cambodia. You see this kind of thing everywhere over there but you can't ever seem to capture it on film since it is usually flying down the road heading the other direction.

For a photographer, this is an outstanding book. Both as examples, for clever shots/scenes, and as a how to.
