    Free saple is worthless

    Nine pages of free sample... that includes the table of contents and nothing else.

    Bad previous review

    Previous review is so wrong! This gem of a book is loaded with diagrams and pictures! Very useful and well designed.

    No images in a photo book?

    The print version of this book looks very useful and full of lots of good information so i was excited to see an electronic version that i could carry on my ipad. I've looked at the sample ebook and noticed that there are no images....only text. That is not disclosed anywhere that I can see on the site--and it should be.

    This is a book on photography and more specifically, lighting DIAGRAMS for photography If you remove the pictures you remove all the value of the book. I would have gladly paid full price or possibly even a premium to have this as an ebook on my iPad, but not without any pictures! At least the amazon version kept the pictures (albeit stripped down to ugly 8bit grayscale images).

    What's next, text-only comic books?

    I hope publishers wake up soon and realize that they are strangling the baby in the crib.
