Book Review

One book to place on your coffee table. One book to turn the pages and be mesmerized by the photographs. One book to be informed and educated by the words of editors, photographers , staff writers and reporters.

The one book is 9" x 12" "TIME The Illustrated History of the World's Most Influential Magazine" by Norberto Angeletti and Alberto Olivia (Rizzoli New York, 2010, $50.00, 432 pages). This one book is a 9" X 12", masterpiece with 600 black and white illustrations.

We are there as history is made through "Time Magazine" covers, writings, images. We are there through the "Person of the Year" awards that began in 1927 with Charles Lindbergh through Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1963 to Ronald Regan in 1980 to Ben Bernanke in 2009.

The ebb and flow, the sweep and grip of history all of this in brilliant
color and incisive writing brings back our world and the times of terror and tears, trying and triumph.

For gift giving, for a worthy addition to your personal library, for a hands on experience with a product that reveals what a great book can do = go for "Time." VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
