Very interesting and informative!  Fun read overall!

At some point, you’ve likely interacted with the Grosvenor family legacy.  Through a book, network series, or just by picking up a yellow bordered magazine, you’ve probably had some experience with National Geographic.  But what about the editor of the magazine?  You likely have no idea about him or the adventures that he has been on with the magazine.  From artic diving to mountain climbing, he’s not only published about it, but he has also experienced it.  With generations of experience before him, he truly is a man of the world.

I love reading memoirs and this was no different.  Learning about the man and the family that has been at the helm of National Geographic for generations was eye opening and entertaining.  From learning about family experiences to seeing what goes on behind the camera and the printing press.  I think my favorite parts may have been the decisions behind the cover photos that have built legacies for the magazine.  If you have been a fan of National Geographic, I highly recommend this book for you!

I received a complimentary copy of this title from the publisher.  The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
