You don't read coffee table books? We'll make you take that so far back that you'll not only buy this book, you'll buy a coffee table to go with it. Earth From Above ($38) is an absolutely amazing collection of natural, urban, and fascinatingly in-between photographs, taken by Yann Arthus-Bertrand as he literally flew around the world. The accompanying text is far from fluffy; it's ecologically-minded and unafraid to get serious. Everyone we show any of the pictures to just sits and flips pages for a while. (If we see mocha rings on your copy, though, we will be miffed.)
FYI, there's a rad Special Editon of this book for you (spendy) eco-warriors out there. It's bound in cloth, and the 5-foot wingspan sits on a specially made stand sold with the book. ($1750)
