"To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower. To hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour."William Blake, "Auguries of Innocence" 1805Here is the world viewed within a grain of sand, thanks to the stunning three-dimensional microphotography of Dr. Gary Greenberg. To some, all sand looks alike--countless grains in a vast expanse of beach. Look closer--much closer--and your view of sand will never be the same. Employing the fantastic microphotographic techniques that he developed, Greenberg invites readers to discover the strange and wonderful world that each grain of sand contains. Here are the sands of Hawaii and Tahiti, the Sahara and the Poles, a volcano, each exquisitely different, and each telling a fascinating geological story. Red sand and yellow, white sand and black, singing sand and quicksand: Greenbergs pictures reveal the subtle differences in their colors, textures, sizes, and shapes. And as this infinitesimal world unfolds so does an intriguing explanation of how each grain of sand begins and forms and finds itself in a particular place, one of a billion and one of a kind.

Beautiful! The author cannot help but bring together art and science. Admire this book for its tremendous photographic artistry. Admire this book for its tremendous scientific information.

All sand is different - this is a fact that the naked eye rarely appreciates. Now, get right down into the sand through extreme magnifications and discover what makes each beach unique. It is otherworldly and awe inspiring as he examines sands from all over the world.

Not overly technical - anyone can understand his explanations of what constitutes each beach sampling. Yet, it will satisfy the intellect.

I would recommend this book for anyone who longs to enjoy the beach for all it's beauty and wonder.

I found this book so fascinating and engrossing. Fortunately for my husband, I reluctantly decided I was content to read and enjoy this book and did NOT take up yet another hobby - micro photography! He breathed a sigh of relief when I stopped short of spending a small fortune on the gear. THAT is how amazing this book is!

As soon as I heard of Dr. Greenberg studying sand through a microscope I was hooked. I love, love love beaches and the way each beach seems to have a different type of sand, a tint of pink, black, brown and white, all with different hues mixed in, and my favorite vacation spot is on a beach and my favorite activity is walking on the beach in search of shells, even the very tiny ones. Most every beach I walk on I scoop up about a tablespoon of the sand and put it in a very small jewelry baggie and tape it into the album I make when we get home. Little did I know the reasons for the different colors textures, etc., until Dr. Greenberg's adventures. I had to have the book, and I'm so pleased I now have it and all my little bags of sand and a microscope to investigate the very real treasures in them.

I am so glad that I chose to "Look Inside" this wonderful book that Dr.Greenberg has presented to the world! Just a few pages and I was busy buying TWO copies ...One for my friend and One for me. We could not believe that that was what sand really looked like!
"I volunteer as a "Greeter" a couple of hours each week at our local "Maritime Museum" and took my "Treasure" with
me yesterday and showed it to one and all that came by to see our local "Treasures". We showcase "Blackbeard's
Treasures" that have been found after 300 years and the skeleton of a Sperm Whale that went aground some 10 or
so years ago and his skeleton hangs from the ceiling. Which took many years of waiting for nature to take care of the
remains and then the final cleaning and putting the bones back together and hanging him from the ceiling.
This book merits a "Gold Medal" if there are such rewards.

Beautiful book with amazing photographs. I love rocks and this is a bit different-- who would have thought sand would look so awesome. bought it for my coffee table.

A wonderful book for those interested in seeing what individual grains of sand look like.
The microphotography by Dr. Gary Greenberg is breathtaking. Grains of sand from around the world are shot in 3-D. Such colors and shapes are surprising. This book is destined to be a conservation
piece. It is not just for the scientific minded, but for all of us who still are amazed by the beauty of nature.

Marvelous book for perusing. The many different types of sand on a beach... you would never know there was much difference until looking at the pictures in this book. Now you can see what makes up the sand grains from different beaches around the world. AN eye-opening lesson into something you might never know otherwise.

Amazing photographs that inspired me to get my own digital camera macroscope. Arenophiles will find this book to be the most satisfying to page through.
This is a really neat book with a lot of great information.
