"A beautifully-designed masterclass in photography brimming with anecdotes and advice from his incomparable 50-year career." - MAXIM Magazine,
"Filled with lessons large and small, as well as the master photographer’s advice and stories behind the making of some of his most iconic images, the book is a great way to learn to be a better photographer from one of the best. " - Digital Photography Magazine,
"This diminutive book contains the intellectual and cerebral sides of the artist that are the ingredients to the recipe that in the end become an unforgettable image." - New York Journal of Books,

"Story-telling and, through that, mentoring, is the first genius of this book. Every brief chapter is filled with anecdote and story. And every story is well-chosen to illuminate a point. That’s the second genius. This is not a book that paints dance-steps on the floor and says step here. This is a book that fills the air with jazz. It’s about motivation and determination and pluck. And yet it’s all about how to dance as well." FRAMES,
