Reviews - What do customers think about Tours of the World?
Good but not great Sep 13, 2005
The photographer has chosen his best pic for the cover. The book contains several more excellent pics but the photographer is pre-occupied with his super wide lens. All pics seem to be taken by a photographer not involved with the event but a mere spectator.
It's good. But it's not Watson. He is still the best.
