This book is so poorly put together. After telling you how to insert the battery and turn the camera on, the writer tells you to push "X" button without telling you where the button may be found. Most camera books start by telling you where each button is located and what it does...not this book! I am so disappointed and will be returning this book!!!

Possibly the most incoherent photo book I've ever wasted money on.  The author jumps from "put in the battery" to quite complex operations, all at the beginning.  Then he says these operations will be defined in much later chapters. Not so much.  Some are, but not all.  I couldn't get much out of it.
