To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Absolutely loved the book, just what I wanted! To save money I bought it used. It was said to be in excellent condition, however when I got it it was sooooooo dirty and a page was ripped! I had to wipe it clean with soap and water, i tried just water at first and it wasn’t coming off :( Super unimpressed with the buyer I used. Not sure how they grade the quality of the used books but it should be changed.
Eh. Saw the book in a hyper-fashionable hotel and decided to order it after taking a quick look. Somewhat on the thin side of style and intelligence. The author is doing a series of these books it seems, trying to emulate Slim Aarons. Not quite there.
Good gift for beach house hostess gift and well received. Not one they will keep forever, perhaps, but fun table book for the summer. Pictures are fun, but could be more beaches covered for price and description.
These images are very well done in terms of being formally beautiful and professional. The design of the book is also elegant and lovely. But pictures of crowded beaches from the air - which comprises most of the photo content of the book - has really been done to death over the past ten years, and by photographers far more unique and original. So if you are looking for a more commercil derivative treatment of this subject, this one would fit the bill.
