    Packed with information, sized for travel

    I've read a number of Bryan Peterson's other books, and been pleased with them. This book is largely a re-packaging and combining of his other books into one volume. If you have his other books, the only real reason to buy this one would be to have something easier to travel with (I'm not packing all his books on a plane). If you don't own any, it's a single volume packed with the information from all his other books. I've found this book, and his other books, to help me look at my photography differently and to inspire me to try new shooting styles.

    Best camera accessory!

    This is the single most valuable accessory for my camera. I have read numberous photography books, and this is the one I always recomend. The author covers a broad range of topics, but not in so much detail as to overwhelm a novices, yet enought to be valuable to the more experianced. This is the book that travels with me.

    Well Written, Full of Useful Information

    Like the previous review, I have read several of Bryan's other books and have been impressed. He has a very easy to read, easy to grasp writing style. This book follows suit, and I found myself not being able to put it down. If you have NOT read any of his other books, do yourself a favor and purchase this ASAP! If you have, still run out and purchase it ASAP..lol.. This book takes the highlights from his other books and puts them in one easy to carry volume. This one is definitely going in my camera bag.
