We all know there are certainly thousands of exceptional
photographs of animals and humans in all situations and in all conditions. What
makes this book unique is the underlying concept of similarity among all of us
– among animals as well as among people of all sorts of shapes, colors, races,
cultures, and religions. We are all a part of this ONE WORLD. If we destroy
this world we destroy ourselves. Without proclamations and loud “buzz words”
this book is a Flag of Peace for our troubled, self-destructive world
This book may seem to have been designed as an entertaining
coffee table volume – pleasing to the eye, relaxing for the mind, and far from
our grey, busy and preoccupied micro-world. However, if one reads the
descriptions, analyzes the anthropological facts, reviews the wealth of
quotations, and thinks about the wisdom of the comments, one concludes that
this is also a scientific textbook. ONE WORLD deserves the best place in
There are many doctors for whom photography is a hobby and
who do it well.
What makes Dr. Michael S. Lewis unique is not the fact that
he is among the best orthopedic surgeons from the Chicago area, nor that he has
been a consultant to the Chicago Bulls, Chicago White Sox and Chicago Wolves
teams, is an avid athlete himself, as well as a great teacher and reliable
friend, but that he exemplifies an American with top professional and personal
qualities trying to keep our World as ONE.
