I love the pictures that are in the book, it has a lot of good info in it also, I am still new to photography so some of the info is confusing to me. the quality is not as good as it should be for the price paid, the binding has come loose and is in need of repair, I am vary careful with my books so I know this did not happen because of carlesness.
