5-0 out of 5 stars Good book, but you provided the wrong information
Mario Sorrenti is not dead.You mentioned in the article that he died from a drug overdose.This, however, is not true.Mario's brother, Davide, died.Sorrenti has published a book on the life of his brother called "The Machine."

3-0 out of 5 stars Chatty, Popular History of Modeling Since 1950
A book like this will normally be expected to contain lots of outstanding photographs with beautiful reproductions.Oddly, the photographs are the weakest part of the book.Much of the book is focused on brief, superficial interviews with famous model industry personalities conducted by David Bailey.The essays primarily repeat what popular magazines have said about the industry over the years, and are written in a similar style to that used in fashion magazines.If you are a younger person, and want to know about what modeling was like before the 90s, the text will probably be of some interest to you.

The essays begin with one about the role of the female model, and how these women emerged from being mannequins (or a blank canvases) who were often expoited into becoming well-known personalities who often developed nonmodeling careers (such as acting).The history of how agents went from controlling the industry (and getting 40 percent of the fees paid to the models) to losing control is then described.Some of the top fashion photographers are profiled next, along with their styles.Brief essays also look at designers, editors, the supermodel phenomenon, those who were harmed by becoming models (especially during heroin chic), and the fashion legends.These essays are the best part of the book

Brief interviews are reported with Isabella Blow; Karen Elson; Cindy Crawford; Jerry Hall; Michael Flutie; Eileen Ford, Lillian Bassman; Bruce Weber; Penelope Tree; Arthur Elgort, Peter Lindbergh; Patrick Demarchelier; Isabella Rossellini; Angelica Huston; Carmen Dell'Orefice; Isaac Mizrahi: Vivienne Westwood; Karl Lagerfeld; Jay Alexander; Liz Tilberis; Polly Mellen: Franca Sozzani; Anna Wintour; Christy Turlington; Naomi Campbell; Helena Christensen; Suzie Bick; James King; Jean Shrinpton; Dorian Leigh; Iman; Karen Elson; and Kate Moss.If you know much about fashion or modeling, little new will emerge here other than occasional snide comments about individuals.

All of the photographs are done by David Bailey.My favorite images in the book (as reproduced here) are:

Peter Lindbergh (p. 23)

Naomi Campbell (pp. 24-25)

Iman (p. 37)

Jerry Hall (pp. 53, 164)

Catherine Deneuve (p. 65)

Jean Shrimpton (pp. 69, 169, 185)

Anne Piaggi (p. 118)

Anna Wintour (p. 127)

Christy Turlington (p. 137)

Carmen Dell'Orefice and Dorian Leigh (p. 171).

Both the photographs and the reproductions are unremarkable.I came away thinking (once again) that David Bailey was lucky that he was able to photograph Jean Shrimpton and Catherine Deneuve so often.With other models, the results are not as good.

Having looked at this material made me realize how much fashion focus is like a brief glance, arresting . . . but then moving on to look at something else.It must be terribly difficult to go from obscurity to the center of attention to being of no more interest to most people.I admire those who can handle it well.

What can you do to make your life become a progression of rewarding accomplishments, so that maturity launches you further along in satisfactions?When you answer that question, you will have obtained a profound benefit from this panorama of fashion history.

When your heart and personality shine, you always look your best!But more importantly, you feel and act your best then, too.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pure Drivel
This book has no redeeming value whatsoever. The photographs look bad, the content is bad and many of the models are has-beens who never were. Overall a waste of paper pulp, although I initially picked it up because I likedthe cover.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very informative
I have browsed through this book and find it extremely informative and creative in a way that it shows an insight to photography and models. The video was far better because it included all views and interviews that thesociety have been wanting to hear. The book may be lacking in some way asit did not show some models like Kate Moss in it's covers, I find thisdissapointing as the video showed Kate much more. It is a pitty howdocumantaries on Kate are never made but all the other models get much morefocus swirled around them. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Comparative Morphology of Vascular Plants
Comparative Morphology of Vascular Plants by Adriance S. Foster and Ernest M Gifford, Jr. is a book in biology that provides combining the basic concepts of vascular plant morphology with a detailed account of the organography, anatomy, and method of reproduction of all of the major groups of the Tracheophyra.

This book combines the research papers, reviews, and draws from other books related on plant morphology.Paleobotanical discoveries are brought out in this book as well in order to help in the classification of vascular plants.Devonian Psilophytales are used as examples in representative parallel line of evolutionary specialization among early vascular plants.
I found that an amble representation was given to the problems of morphogenesis and ontogenetic processes.

Great care was taken in writing the book to make the reader aware of what the reader is looking at so that he/she will not miss the forest because of the trees. This book goes into great detail and has detailed illustrative examples all making the text very understandable.

The first six chapters are an orientation to the reader and are used in frequent cross-referencing throughout the book making an excellent foundation.Relating morphological principles help in structure and reproductive explanation in vascular plants, bringing detail and clearer understanding.

Morphogenesis, general organography, cytology and comparative fundamental structure are well represented here.This is an excellent text on plant comparative morphology of vasular plants. ... Read more
