    A friendly, up-to-the-minute guide on what it takes to make it

    I was sold early on when the author revealed his system for arranging portfolio images in the strongest possible way. So much about portfolios is subjective, and I appreciated that the book had suggestive guidance instead of absolute fixes. I picked up the book with an eye toward the photojournalism advice, but there are sections on many niches, like weddings, fine art, nature and commercial work that should be helpful for folks in those fields. Each section has advice from a working photographer in that category, and the back of the book has a compilation of 'Best Moves' and 'Worst Moves' from interviews with other industry experts. So, you get insights from a range of people, as well as photos. All in all, money well spent for me.
