Book Review for "Nat Geo Amazing!" by Melina Gerosa Bellows

Nat Geo Amazing!: 100 People, Places, and Things That Will Wow You by Melina Gerosa Bellows
(National Geographic, June 29, 2010)

Nat Geo Amazing! is an awe-inspiring collection of human culture, animal oddities, and true tales of wonder.

Nat Geo Amazing! is filled with pages of unbelievable stories and unforgettable images which bring to the forefront questions about the why and how of the content. Readers can’t help but want to know more about these incredible 100 topics comprising various people, places, and things.

The author dug deep inside years of past stories from National Geographic, also incorporating information from many new traveling adventures, to create Nat Geo Amazing! Each page is filled with remarkable stories from finding letters of the alphabet in butterfly wings to adventures in underground caves. This book holds true to the real life oddities and information that National Geographic is known for revealing.

This book is a companion to a new National Geographic TV series launching in July called “Nat Geo Amazing!” Readers can visit National Geographic’s website and send in their personal stories and photos which might provide material for future topics and books.

This book is highly recommended for people who love the National Geographic magazines and real-life stories.
