Freedom, happiness, family, love, faith—how important are such values to the lives of an American versus a Russian, or someone from France, Nepal, Rwanda, China, Kosovo, Cuba, or Iran? The creator of the book and documentary series Earth From Above, Yann Arthus-Bertrand and his team wandered the world for five years, speaking with 5,000 people in 75 countries and gathering their responses to life's most fundamental questions. Some 500 of them are presented here with closeup portraits and captivating interviews; their differing experiences and opinions confront each other, complement each other, and invite the reader to contemplate our human and cultural diversity.
