Apparently my idea of "Macro" and the author's is different. To me a macro photo requires a macro lens, a zoom lens with a "macro" function, or some other modification to a lens to allow placing the lens a foot or closer from the subject to create a photo with the subject at life size at the least, usually 1 to many times greater than life size.. There are several of these type shots in the book but a great deal of them are just good photos of small objects using normal lenses.
The first third or so of the book covers such things as how a camera works, storage media, lens types, etc, etc. All good stuff but this is supposed to cover a defined small area of photography and I would imagine anyone considering this book would be familiar with these topics.
The last thing I had a problem with was that in the synopsis it states,"special sections show how to create greeting cards,stationary..." I have yet to find anything like this. If it is in there it is buried within the text somewhere but there is no "Special Section" that I've been able to find.
