Book Review - Every Penguin in the World: A Quest to See Them All

Every Penguin in the World: A Quest to See Them All

About the Book
“Through powerful stories and beautiful photographs, Every Penguin in the World is a celebration of these delightful birds and a call for their conservation. This is a book of joy, love, and hope for penguins and the world.” —Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace

Both a love letter and a call to action, this narrative and photographic book chronicles the author and his wife in their quest to see every penguin species on the planet. In the process, he muses about adventure, conservation, and what it is about penguins that captures our hearts.

Every Penguin in the World tracks author-photographer Charles Bergman's forays around the southern hemisphere--from the Galapagos to South Africa to the Antarctic--in his quest to see all 18 species of penguins in the world. The sections of the book are organized around themes of adventure, science and conservation, and pilgrimage--in which stories of each penguin species will be touched upon.

This endearing and thought-provoking book beautifully combines narrative and photography to capture the plight and the experience of penguins worldwide. The author and his wife developed a passion after seeing their first penguin species and have since spent years traveling far and wide to see each variety of penguin in its natural habitat.


My Take on the Book
If you love penguins you will love this book. It was filled with amazing images but also made you think deeply about the plight of the penguin. The highlight of the book were the amazing photos throughout the book of so many different varieties of penguins. The book takes you on a true adventure, allowing you to explore the world where penguins live. You learn about their communities and about the species as a whole. In the end this book is an amazing one that you will keep coming back to. You will also want to keep sharing this with others too. Highly recommend this book to all!
