Charlie’s Angels’ failure is just the most recent evidence that woke feminist films are box office poison. The film’s financial floundering comes on the heels of the cataclysmic, performance of another big budget piece of pro-feminist propaganda, ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’, which sank at the box office like an Austrian-accented cybernetic android into a vat of molten steel. There have been a plethora of like-minded girl power movies released in 2019 that have produced similarly dismal results at the box office. ncluding women!

Because It's There takes us on a marvelous photographic journey with more than 90 adventurous and spectacular images from five continents. Authors/Photographers Charlie and Diane Winger believe there is no better reason to move beyond a familiar horizon, explore what lies around the next bend, and discover a world outside our previous experience than "Because it's there." Like George Mallory, who uttered that famous response when asked why he strove to be the first to climb Mount Everest, the Wingers are also inspired by mountains. Charlie is the mountaineer of the family, and nearly all the snow-covered, glaciated, massive peaks in this photographic journey were his passion (and obsession). Diane is the hiker and casual rock climber, but has ventured up a few of those more challenging mountains along the way. The Wingers draw on their extensive collection of photographs taken while writing guidebooks, climbing and trekking among some of the most beautiful peaks in the world, and enjoying time in special outdoor areas which they have come to love. Along the way, they tell a few stories and share a few laughs.

Some of the pictures were absolutely breathtaking. Others I passed right over. I found myself passing over the text as well. I guess I was more interested in the pictures. I got this kindle version for free, and while I *did* enjoy looking at the pictures, it's not something I would have bought because it's just not my usual reading fare.

I don't have a Kindle Fire and, because of the beautiful colors in most of the pictures, I think a lot would be lost viewing the book on my black and white Kindle. However, seen on the Cloud Reader on my Mac, the majority of the pictures were awe inspiring to a non climber who will never see any of these mountains in person. I gave 4 stars because for me the close up and/or group pictures of the climbers interrupted the flow of the pictures without people. However, the pictures of climbers from a distance accentuated the the grandeur of the mountains vs the specks of humanity represented by the climbers. Other than the pictures focusing on the climbers, I can't agree that the pictures are of amateur quality. Many of the pictures capture shadow and light in a way that enhances the beauty of the areas photographed. I didn't download the book to my Kindle because of its size and black and white limits, but I'm pleased to have enjoyed the pictures and commentary on the Cloud Reader.

Gorgeous places, with brief explanations of each picture. I wish the captions tied the pictures together better, by telling the story of each trek. I found that quite often, I was left wanting to know more than the authors shared. I don't want a minute by minute account, just a more cohesive story to go with the lovely photos.

Photo books highlight the one real flaw with kindle books - no change of orientation. It would be nice if I could read the captions beside the photographs instead of having to flip back and forth. Being able to turn my mac sideways and see the pictures larger would also be nice.

A few reviews called the photos amateurish. These are very good quality photographs (with one or two exceptions taken 30 years ago.)The authors are hiking and climbing enthusiasts, not photographers, but the quality is quite good. So, they aren't Nat. Geo. quality, they aren't that far off.

The Photos are done by armatures, poor composition and the subjects are not done justice, (you will not find another great photo like the one on the cover anywhere in the book).
Also the Pictures are small and the footnote for each makes it more of a personal photo journal. Unless you have a personal attachment to the photos you are unlikely to find them more then mildly interesting.

Got it free & deleted it within minutes of browsing the book. Well at least it was free...

Wanted to try out my Kindle Fire to see if pictures would really work on it, they do. This book has fantastic pictures of some of many places I have not been. As the title implies, it is about MT. Climbing, not my sport at all, but the views, WOW! Photography is fantastic and the story is good. This is a short book and I managed to get it for free. it was a great opportunity to see how a Kindle works with pictures (very nice).

The photos are very nice and show interesting aspects of hiking in the desert and mountain climbing. However, I am glad that the book was not the full kindle price, as I would have regretted paying for it because of the formatting.

I purchased the kindle version and it was very "wonky." To make sure it wasn't just one of the devices that wasn't a correct format, I viewed it on a kindle device, kindle cloud reader and kindle for mac. The type floats up weirdly along the edge of the photos which makes it harder to read. The photos themselves do not lend for a Kindle Fire experience, as they have a giant white border and appear very small on the screen. This book is an example of how if you are going to self publish, hiring a graphic designer to edit and correctly format your work would make a world of difference.

I would recommend only buying the print version of the book as the kindle version does not do the photography justice.

I've sometimes indicated, in my own work, that I consider myself a non-professional in terms of photography, and it is the type of work in this book that I am comparing myself to, and consider truly professional.

I don't personally know the authors, but felt the short commentary under each image is authentically felt, at times with a touch of welcome humor.

If one also considers that the cost to the authors to deliver to the reader, is based on the digital size of their book file, and see the number size and quality of the images in this ebook, at $2.99! it is, in my admittedly limited opinion, a bargain.

It's hard for me to believe anyone would be disappointed in sampling and having this photo ebook.
Climbers go up mountains because they're there; photographers take pictures because they can. These images are the sort you can only get when you've climbed, or are in the process of climbing, the mountain. Quality is good, but then it would be -- up high, the air is clearer and sharper, and it shows in the pictures.
