When you think of coffee table books then you may as well start with this one. It has all the wow factors, stunning photography, the most desirable items one could own, the most fabulous places one could visit and the most exhilarating adventures you could go on. This is the life! Some people do it, some people dream it and the rest of us get to drool over the book. Many of the cars, bikes, boats, watches, planes, etc have price tags on them in US dollars and Euros, so depending on the Aussie exchange rate they could be quite well priced.
As all books from the publisher, teNeues, it is beautifully finished and is really incredible value at this price. Yes, it is the perfect gift for a man, but it is still equally appreciated by women, as many female employees at Booktopia have reminded me! This book is titled to say it is for men, so it is definitely sexist but... it was edited by two women, so perhaps you will have take that up with them! :-)
Nonetheless, it is the very perfect gift for a man that appreciates style and beautiful things and you won't go wrong buying this for him, especially if he is not a big reader but really loves his toys.
